Forecasters say a cold front moving into the state will drop the freezing level from as high as 6,000 feet to around 2,500 feet, holding precipitation in the mountains as snow.
A flood warning remains in effect Wednesday morning for the Stillaguamish, Skykomish, Pilchuck, Tolt, Snoqualmie and Puyallup rivers. Flood watches remain and other rivers flowing off the Cascades.
