Traveling? Light snow expected across E. Washington

The Associated Press

There’s a 40 percent chance of rain Tuesday morning in the Seattle area with highs in the upper 40s, according to the National Weather Service forecast. Lows are expected to be around 40.

Light snow is forecast Tuesday over most of Eastern Washington, and snow in the Cascades is reaching the highway passes.

No significant accumulations are expected, but the NWS says more mountain snow is expected later in the week with minimal valley snow or rain on the east side.

The Transportation Department reports snow and slush in places Tuesday morning on Snoqualmie Pass, and snow and ice in places on Stevens Pass where traction tires are advised. Snow flurries are reported at White Pass.

The Weather Service says the jet stream, which blew rain into California, is expected to shift back to the Northwest by the end of the week. That could bring more showers to Western Washington and snow to the mountains.
