  Weather Statement: chance of snow

A cold front will bring colder temperatures and a chance of lowland snow this weekend. A series of storm systems next week will bring periods of winter weather to western Washington, according to a special weather statement released by the National Weather Service/Seattle today. The statement reads:

A STRONG COLD FRONT IS FORECAST TO MOVE THROUGH WESTERN
WASHINGTON LATER SATURDAY...USHERING IN A COLDER AIR MASS WHICH
WILL LINGER INTO MONDAY. THIS WILL LOWER SNOW LEVELS TO NEAR 500
FEET SATURDAY NIGHT AND POTENTIALLY TO SEA-LEVEL SUNDAY MORNING.
HIT AND MISS SHOWERS WILL DEVELOP WITH A THREAT OF A CONVERGENCE
ZONE SETTING UP FROM SNOHOMISH COUNTY NORTHWARD LATE SATURDAY
NIGHT AND SUNDAY. THE SHOWERS COMBINED WITH THE EXPECTED SNOW
LEVEL BRINGS A THREAT OF SOME SNOW ACCUMULATIONS TO PARTS OF THE
LOWLANDS. AT THIS TIME...PREDICTING WHERE AND HOW MUCH SNOW WILL
FALL THIS WEEKEND IS NOT POSSIBLE BUT IT IS MORE LIKELY OVER
HILLTOPS AND UNDER THE CONVERGENCE ZONE AND HEAVIER SHOWERS.

FROM TUESDAY ONWARD A SERIES OF STORM SYSTEMS WILL MOVE ACROSS THE
PACIFIC NORTHWEST...BRINGING A THREAT FOR A VARIETY OF WINTER
WEATHER TO WESTERN WASHINGTON. THESE STORMS WILL SPREAD
SIGNIFICANT SNOW ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS RAISING THE POTENTIAL FOR
AVALANCHES AND PERIODS OF DIFFICULT TRAVEL ACROSS THE PASSES
. THE
EXPECTED OVERALL AIR MASS OVER THE REGION THROUGH THIS PERIOD WILL
BE COLD ENOUGH THAT THERE WILL CONTINUE TO BE A THREAT FOR PERIODS
OF SNOW OVER THE LOWLANDS. VARIATIONS IN THE INTENSITY AND TRACK OF
THESE SYSTEMS WILL SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT THE PRECIPITATION TYPE AND
AMOUNTS.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER WEATHER SERVICE WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR
THIS RISING POTENTIAL FOR WINTER WEATHER GOING INTO THE HOLIDAY
WEEKEND AND THROUGH MUCH OF NEXT WEEK. STAY TUNED FOR FUTURE
STATEMENTS AND FORECASTS FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION.
