We could see snow or freezing rain in some places Monday as a new weather system moves in.
Temperatures will warm higher in the atmosphere but remain cold at the surface. That sets us up for snow or freezing rain.
The transition to the wetter and warmer conditions will likely be a bit messy both Monday and Tuesday, said KING 5 Meteorologist Lisa Van Cise.
“The amount of moisture for both days is quite light. However, with our cold air firmly in place, the light showers will likely start in the form of snow flurries Monday,” she said.
Van Cise said it looks like the showers will push in by late morning north of Everett, along the coast, and through the Strait. The foothills, north sound and central coast have a better chance for showers in the afternoon.
Anything that falls on Monday and Tuesday is expected to be light, but it only takes a little freezing rain to make travel hazardous.
The National Weather Service says for the entire I-5 corridor, the surface air temperature should rise above freezing around mid-day on Tuesday, so any precipitation should fall as rain.
