Parts of north Western Washington started to see snow Saturday morning and more is expected throughout the weekend.

The early snow is from a system moving down the coast of British Columbia.

Cool air coming off the Fraser River is expected to drop the snow levels between sea level and 500 feet north of Everett, and slightly higher south Everett (500 to 1,000 feet). North of Everett and the interior foothills are most likely to see a rain snow mix with up to three inches of accumulation Saturday.

The precipitation from the first system should be over by Saturday afternoon.

Sunday afternoon a second chance at snow will begin to develop. Cold air from the Fraser River Canyon will bring gusty winds into Bellingham. At the same time, a storm is expected to move up from the southwest, bringing moisture with it.

This system combined with the cold air will likely produce areas of wet snow from Everett south. The showers will be increasingly heavy and are expected to last until daybreak on Monday.

Temperatures will rise into the 40s Monday and the snow will melt.
