It’s going to be a wet and windy Tuesday night around Western Washington.
KING 5 Meteorologist Rich Marriott says rain will increase Tuesday afternoon and into the evening. Wind gusts could reach 30 mph over Puget Sound and possibly reach 40-to-45 mph north of Everett mid-to-late Tuesday night. Highs will be in the mid-to-upper 40s. Most areas could receive as much as an inch of rainfall.
Wind gusts along the coast could reach 50 mph.
The wet conditions are expected to continue for the next two weeks.
Heavy snow fell in the higher elevations over the 24-hour period ending Tuesday morning. Stevens Pass received 17-inches of new snow and Snoqualmie Pass got 3-inches of new snow.
Marriott says the snow level will bounce between 2,000-feet and 5,000-feet over the next week. Elevations above 4,000-feet should 4-to-6 feet of snow in the next week while areas between 3,000-feet and 4,000-feet will switch between rain and snow.
