LOW SNOW LEVELS ARE EXPECTED BY MONDAY MORNING AS PRECIPITATION DEVELOPS. WHILE WET SNOW WILL FALL MONDAY MORNING IN MANY LOCATIONS...TEMPERATURES JUST ABOVE FREEZING WILL MINIMIZE ROADWAY IMPACTS. ABOVE A FEW HUNDRED FEET OF ELEVATION AND WITHIN ANY CONVERGENCE ZONE NORTH OF SEATTLE...A COUPLE INCHES OF SNOW COULD ACCUMULATE RESULTING IN SLUSHY ROADWAYS. MONDAY EVENING THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING...THE AIR WILL BE COLD ENOUGH THAT ANY SNOW SHOWERS THAT DO OCCUR COULD CAUSE ICY ROADWAYS...INCLUDING IN THE METRO AREAS.

A STORM SYSTEM WILL BRING MOISTURE AND WARMER AIR BACK INTO THE REGION LATE WEDNESDAY INTO THURSDAY. PRECIPITATION DURING THIS TIME MAY START AS SNOW...HOWEVER DETAILS STILL REMAIN UNCLEAR AND WILL BEAR WATCHING OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS.

...COLDER TEMPERATURES AND A CHANCE FOR LOWLAND SNOW SUNDAY NIGHT AND EARLY NEXT WEEK...

...A THREAT OF ISOLATED LANDSLIDES CONTINUES...

A FRONT DROPPING SOUTHWARD SUNDAY WILL ALLOW A MUCH COLDER AIR MASS TO FILTER INTO THE REGION SUNDAY NIGHT AND EARLY NEXT WEEK. PRECIPITATION WILL BECOME SHOWERY AS SNOW LEVELS FALL TO AROUND 500 FEET BY MONDAY MORNING. AN INCH OR TWO OF LOCALIZED SNOW ACCUMULATION IS POSSIBLE SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY...MAINLY ON HILLTOPS AND LOCATIONS AWAY FROM THE WATER.

THE PUGET SOUND CONVERGENCE ZONE COULD ALSO BECOME ACTIVE MONDAY OVER WESTERN SNOHOMISH COUNTY AND NORTHWEST KING COUNTY...POSSIBLY BRINGING A FEW INCHES OF LOCALIZED SNOW ACCUMULATION DOWN NEAR SEA-LEVEL. BY MONDAY EVENING...TEMPERATURES WILL BE COLD ENOUGH FOR SNOW SHOWERS EVEN IN THE GREATER PUGET SOUND SEATTLE METRO AREA. SOME SNOW COULD ACCUMULATE IMPACTING THE COMMUTE. FORECASTS SHOULD BE MONITORED FOR THE CHANCE OF LOWLAND SNOW EARLY NEXT WEEK.

MEANWHILE...SOILS REMAIN SATURATED FROM HEAVY RAINFALL THAT FELL DURING THE PAST SEVERAL WEEKS. THIS WILL MAINTAIN THE RISK OF ISOLATED LANDSLIDES.
