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.
The cold will bring a chance of lowland snow showers over the weekend in Western Washington.
