Snow could be coming to the coast

November 27, 2013

The National Weather Service has issued a Special Weather Statement for the coast.

Much colder weather is expected throughout Western Washington Sunday night through early next week.

Weather forecast models are showing a big change in the weather pattern starting Saturday night or early Sunday and continuing through much of next week.

A strong frontal system will move through the area late Saturday night and Sunday. The biggest impact of this storm will be in the mountains.

A very cold arctic air mass is expected to develop over the Yukon Saturday night into Sunday then drop southward into British Columbia late Sunday into Monday. There is an increasingly good chance that some of this cold air will move into Western Washington on Monday.

Details are difficult to pinpoint as we are still days out from this potential event. But with this type of system it is likely that there will be some lowland snow. Lowland snow, if it occurs, may bring slick roads across portions of the Western Washington lowlands on Monday.

Forecasts are likely to change as we get closer to the event for later this weekend into early next week.
