EVERETT — Snow might dust the lowlands of Western Washington this Presidents Day weekend, but there’s no guarantee.
Wet, windy weather is expected to drift into the region Saturday, carrying plenty of rain to low elevations and about 2 feet of snow in the mountains, according to the National Weather Service in Seattle.
Colder air is scheduled to arrive late Saturday, meaning people at low elevations could wake up to snow on the ground Sunday. It is difficult to forecast, however, how much would stick near sea level, according to the weather service. And we might just get plain old rain.
What’s clear is the passes in the Cascades will get heavy snow. So people with plans for a holiday trip across the mountains might want to reconsider.
By late Monday, temperatures could dip into the low 20s, and it might be the coldest day of winter in the region, the weather service forecasted. Roads likely will be icy.
