Could scattered showers, colder temps mean possible lowland snow next week?

SEATTLE -- The rain is clearing out in Western Washington– but there is now a chance of snow beginning to develop in the lowlands early next week.

Skies will start to clear from north to south today– with highs only in the upper 40s. Normal for this part of November is 50 degrees.

We still have some rivers above flood stage– but they’ll continue receding today. Mt. Baker Ski Area opens today for skiing and hopefully other NW resorts will follow soon.

With clear skies at night, we’ll see some cold overnight temps.

Friday will start frozen and frosty in a lot of places, so find that ice scraper today. Fog will also be a problem for the morning commute.

The weekend looks to be our nicest so far this month. Both Saturday and Sunday do look a bit icy in the morning– but we’ll get nice afternoon sunshine.

Monday another system moves through with some rain– but it doesn’t look like a soaker at this point.

There will be much colder temperatures when we see scattered Tuesday showers. Some of those showers will be SNOW showers in some really low places on Tuesday morning. We’ll know more details as we get a bit closer.

The busy travel day Wednesday looks to be cold but dry– and so does Thanksgiving this year too. Highs are looking like they’ll be only near 40, with lows near freezing.
