Western Washington is likely to see its first widespread snow of the season late Thursday night and into Friday morning. And it could lead to problems for the morning and school closures or delays.

KING 5 Chief Meteorologist Jeff Renner said snow could fall approximately between 10 p.m. and 1 a.m. in Whatcom County, midnight to 3 a.m. in the Seattle area (central Puget Sound) and 2 a.m. or later for Tacoma southward (if any).

Snow totals north of Everett could reach 2-to-7 inches, depending on where you live. The SeaTac to Everett area could get 1-to-5 inches and the south Puget Sound area should get a trace to 2 inches.

Expect the snow to be wet and slushy.

The snow should start switching back to rain mid to late morning, but the snow could persist later in the day around Whatcom County and Hood Canal.

Showers are likely Saturday, increasing rain on Sunday. Temperatures should be mild with highs in the mid to upper 40's.
