Hoping for a big snowfall down low this week? If you’re living in Seattle, chances are you’ll have to keep waiting.

Much of the Puget Sound Region is getting what you would expect, that typical Seattle rain, says National Weather Service Meteorologist Steve Reedy. While temperatures are expected to drop, the intensity of the rain is expected to ease up today and that means  snow here isn’t likely.

People living around Everett and to the north and in the higher elevations might see a dusting of snow Thursday night. A few folks in Seattle might see a few flurries as well, Reedy said.

In the Seattle-area, expect temperatures around 48 degrees today, dipping to the mid 30s tonight. The rest of the week, daytime temperatures will hover around 40, Reedy said.

If you’re looking for snow, head to the mountains, where a winter storm warning has been issued from Snohomish County and north, with up to 15 inches of snow expected to fall.
