Western Washington forecast

Rain/snow mix through early Wednesday morning. Cloudy day with more rain showers by the afternoon.

PUGET SOUND FORECAST:

Wednesday starts with rain with chance of snowflakes and sleet in the mix until sunrise. A mostly cloudy day with highs in the low to mid 40s. More showers by the afternoon from the south moving to the north. Snow levels by the afternoon near 1,000 ft.

DISCUSSION:

We may see 2 to 3 inches of wet snow in Kitsap Peninsula, Hood Canal and Pacific County by Wednesday morning. But most of the snow showers will end by sunrise (7:41 a.m.) and we'll have a cloudy day with highs in the low to mid 40s. 

Another round of showers will swing around that storm off the coast by Wednesday afternoon sending us more rain showers, but at that point snow levels should go back up near 1,000 ft. So the lowlands should get all rain. It will be heavy at times through about midnight moving from south to north.

The Eastern side of the Cascades may get 3 to 7 inches of fresh snow with gusty winds through Wednesday.

A weak area of high pressure moves in during the morning on Thursday and we'll only get a few showers early with snow levels 1,000-1,500 feet and they will decrease and end during the morning followed by a little clearing.

Knowing your elevation helps you to know whether or not you’ll see snow. Elevation Finder is a helpful tool to use to discover the elevation where you live.
