It’s going to be a cold week, weather service says

Break out the mittens and mufflers; cold weather is on its way.

The National Weather Service says residents of Western Washington can expect to wake up Monday to temperatures a lot like they were most of Sunday — in the 40s — but that through the day the mercury is going to take a dive. By the time the Seattle Seahawks suit up for the game against the New Orleans Saints Monday night, it’s going to be close to freezing and getting colder by the hour.

Meteorologist Josh Smith says there might even  be a few snow flurries during the game, but don’t expect snow to stick to the roads near Puget Sound. There could be some small accumulations inland above 500 feet, he said.

The cold temperatures are expected to stay through the week, bringing drier air to the region, Smith said.  Strong, cold winds will move south from Canada through Bellingham, with bitter temperatures expected in the area.

Smith reported that minor flooding was expected along the Puyallup River near Orting.
