After several days of near-springlike weather, temperatures will fall across the Puget Sound region to begin the workweek, with the possibility of accumulating snow.
The National Weather Service in Seattle says rain will change to snow by the evening hours on Sunday, February 3 and continue overnight. As much as three inches could fall in the lowland areas of King County, including the Seattle metro. Snowfall may continue through the Monday morning commute, making roads slick. Temperatures will struggle to reach the mid 30s for highs on Monday, with lows in the lower to mid 20s on Monday and Tuesday.
