Cold and clear skies will stick with the Seattle area through Tuesday, but the rain should be returning midweek, according to the National Weather Service forecast.

The high temperatures, expected to be in the mid-50s, should stay about the same, said Jay Neher, an NWS meteorologist. But with the return of cloud cover, the lows won’t get as low.

A weak system could bring a little rain overnight Wednesday, Neher said. Expect more rain Friday as a stronger system comes through the area.

Much of the state has been under varying levels of burn bans, but the shifting weather likely will alter conditions to allow the bans to be lifted, Neher said. Visit waburnbans.net to check the conditions in your county.

Meanwhile, parts of New York can expect to be hit by up to 6 feet of snow. In a region accustomed to major snow storms, this one is being called one of the worst in recent memory.
