Warmer temperatures Tuesday could make short work of any snow that does fall at lower elevations
Despite Sunday’s sunshine and relatively warm temperatures, winter isn’t quite done with the Puget Sound region.
The local National Weather Service station says a strong cold front was expected to sweep across the area sometime late Sunday night or early Monday morning, producing 6 to 12 inches of snow in the mountains and mixed rain/snow showers at lower elevations.
Depending on how quickly the cold front moves, elevations down to 400 feet could receive an inch or two of snow before the precipitation tapers off late Monday night.
Any snow in the Seattle area probably won’t last long, though: Tuesday is predicted to be mostly sunny with a high temperature near 45.
