Tracking storm chances Sunday and wintry weather possible for Monday
A storm system will bring rain chances to the area Sunday night and the possibility of wintry weather Monday.
This evening, a cold front will sweep through the area. There's a chance for showers and thunderstorms to develop before moving to the east. Everything should be cleared out shortly after sunrise Monday. We'll start the day with temps in the upper 30s.
We're tracking a very windy day with northwest winds expected between 20 and 40 mph, gusting to 60 at times. Highs will only make it into the mid 40s.
Wrap around moisture from this storm system will make for a snowy day in the Panhandle. There is a Blizzard Warning in effect for King County beginning at 9:00 p.m. Sunday and lasting until 6:00 p.m. Monday. Strong winds will make for hazardous travel, and even whiteout conditions.
A Winter Weather Advisory is also in effect for Kent and Stonewall Counties beginning at midnight tonight and going through Monday evening at 6:00 p.m. Snow totals will likely be around an inch but blowing snow could make travel dangerous.
Monday night, things quiet down. Winds will die off to around 15 mph with temperatures falling to around 30.
A gentler weather pattern sets up for the rest of the week. Tuesday, highs are in the upper 50s and low 60s with sunny skies.
A cold front moves through Tuesday night but we'll stay dry. Look for afternoon temps in the mid 50s Wednesday.
Highs continue to run below average through Saturday with highs in the mid to upper 50s. Morning start out on the chilly side as well, in the upper 20s and low 30s.
Next Sunday will be our first day above normal for the week as highs climb into the upper 60s.
