Snow may be headed our way. Exactly when, how much and how long it will last – that remains to be seen.

Beginning Saturday evening, “the conditions will be ripe for snow, but accumulations are difficult to pin down,” said Weather Service meteorologist Jeff Michalski.

He said the Puget Sound area is not likely to see a big dump of snow, but instead will see “isolated scattered showers, and some of those could produce snow.”

By Sunday, a 50 percent chance of snow is in the forecast. “These showers will be the hit-or-miss type,” he said. “Some place could see an inch or two and some places might not get any.”

The good news for commuters is that the snow may be polite enough to stick around only during the three-day Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.

A warming trend is expected to arrive Tuesday, with snow showers giving way to rain.

It’s possible that it still might be cold enough to snow on the Tuesday afternoon commute, but that’s too far away for a detailed snow forecast, Michalski said.
