Bitter cold, some lowland snow on tap this week in Western Washington

SEATTLE – First comes the bitter cold, soon to be followed by the lowland snow.

It’s that time of the year in the Puget Sound.

Q13 News meteorologist Walter Kelley said Monday to expect icy roads every night and morning this week as temperatures drop into the 20s.

The snow level won’t rise above 500 feet for most of the week, and will likely drop enough later in the week for snow to fall in the South Sound and the high hills over the east side of the counties.

“Every rain shower can also have some snow mixed in this week,” Kelley said.
