Snow to give way to sunshine and spring temps

Snow to 60 degrees in two days?

It could happen.

Snow was falling in many areas around Puget Sound Tuesday morning, with a trace to 3 inches or more recorded by 7 a.m..

Whidbey Island had two to three inches of snow, Arlington had a couple inches and snow was making driving hazardous in some parts of Pierce County.

But expect a quick change, said Dustin Guy of the National Weather Service in Seattle.

“The showers will taper off this morning, the skies will be clearing and we’ll be looking at drier weather continuing through Thursday.”

Guy said a ridge of high pressure will create “very springlike conditions” for the next couple of days. Some forecasts call for temperatures that could approach 60 on Thursday.

A chance of rain comes back into the forecast Friday evening and the weekend looks showery, with high temperatures in the 50s.
