Looks like our dry March is coming to an end, at least for a few days. There’s a 50 percent chance of rain late Tuesday night, increasing to a 70 percent chance of rain on Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service forecast.

Areas of morning fog may slow your commute. Expect the rest of the day to be mostly cloudy with a high around 56.

We haven’t had any rain since Feb. 27, said Jay Albrecht, a Weather Service meteorologist. February was the warmest on record for the Puget Sound area.

“This winter we’ve had reasonably normal levels of precipitation,” Albrecht said, but it’s fallen on just a few days, mostly as warm rain.

The mountains will see a few flakes, but the snow levels are expected to stay around 5,000 to 6,000 feet.

“Ski areas at lower-level passes won’t be helped out by this,” Albrecht said.

We get a chance to dry out later Thursday and Friday before the rain sets in again on the weekend, he said.
