Light snow expected on the passes Tuesday as snow levels drop

SEATTLE – Grab your jackets and prepare for a wet and chilly Tuesday morning!

A small storm system will bring sporadic rain across western Washington but should dissipate midday. A frigid low of 38 degrees and a high of just 52 make for a cold autumn day.

The average high is 64 for this time of year.

The cold temperatures mean snow elevations will drop rapidly overnight. The National Weather Service says drivers can expect light snow in the morning as low as 3,000 feet.

Sunny days return and highs will warm up slightly towards the end of the week.

If you haven’t broken out that tote with your warm coat and favorite scarves and sweaters– this would be the week to do so.
