Sun in Seattle, snowy elsewhere

Although it was sunny in downtown Seattle at noon today, light snow was reported falling in some outlying areas and it appears some areas at higher elevations could get more snow as the day progresses

Spotty, light snow is forecast for later today and there could be some accumulation this evening for portions of Western Washington, according to the National Weather Service.

If any of the wet snow sticks, it would be just an inch or two and it would likely be on the higher hills.

Cool air and low pressure are expected to create scattered rain and snow showers through the evening, says the Weather Service.

Tomorrow there’s a chance of rain and snow in the very early morning, but that would be at the 800 foot level and higher, says the Weather Service. No accumulation is expected. But it’s going to be cold with the temperature dropping to 32 degrees overnight.

The Weather Service says another system is expected to roll in on Tuesday, with rain and snow showers.
