EVERETT — A cold, wet weather system moving into western Washington could bring 1 to 3 inches of snow to parts of Snohomish County on Monday, according to forecasters.

High temperatures will be in the mid-40s so there will be some rain-snow mix, but above 400 feet a couple of inches of snow could accumulate, said Johnny Burg, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Seattle.

Snow could fall near sea level Monday night as temperatures drop, Burg said. The greatest chance of show in the lowlands is east and north of Seattle, including around Everett. “There is a good chance that the Puget Sound convergence zone will become active affecting Snohomish and King County county from late Monday morning through Monday evening,” according to a special statement by the Weather Service. Clearing is expected overnight today and into Tuesday.

“Most of (the snow) will probably melt, but Monday night temperatures will get below freezing, so there could be some ice” Tuesday morning, Burg said.
