Snow and rain will be tapering through the evening across Western Washington but some flurries are possible into Saturday morning.

Locations above 200 feet in elevation still have the best chance for accumulations, which have occurred in many areas north of Seattle today.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect into tonight for Western Washington.

What about a White Christmas?

In the lowlands, snow that does fall -- and sticks -- will mainly fade tonight and Saturday as ground temperatures remain warm.

Above 500 feet where snow amounts could well be heavier, we could see some pockets of snow (especially in shaded areas) sticking around into Christmas.

Unfortunately for snow lovers, the atmosphere quickly dries tonight into Saturday so aside from some flurries, we're not likely to get further precipitation. 

Christmas Day looks dry with a mix of clouds and sun and highs in the 30s.  It will be an EXCELLENT weekend for holiday skiing in the mountains!  

Travel east of the Cascades, however, could be made difficult at times with slick spots on roadways.
