Chilly temps, spotty snow showers persist

The temperature profile is right for some mixed snow showers Thursday morning, and bands of snow were reported in Kent, Issaquah, Auburn and Snoqualmie, among other areas.

In Federal Way, Washington State Department of Transportation cameras on Interstate 5 at South 277th Street showed significant consistent snow coming down, and while it was not sticking to roads, it did whiten grassy surfaces. After about an hour, the snow tapered off into a wintry mix.

People in West Seattle and South Park also reported some light snow, and in parts of the South Sound, it has snowed the last three days this week.

Some isolated thunderstorms are possible, which again means the potential for heavy showers and possibly more wet snow.

This afternoon, the same pattern from the past few days will continue, with some pockets of showers here and there and temperatures in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

On Friday, a few showers are still possible. Highs will be in the low 50s.

Looking ahead

Saturday will likely be a wetter day, especially in the afternoon, with highs in the 40s to low 50s.

Easter Sunday looks drier, but there still might be a few light showers early in the day with highs in the 50s.

Expect some rain early next week with some mountain snow. Temperatures will be milder so there won’t be any more lowland snow threats next week though temperatures stay cooler than average.

We should be in the upper 50s for highs in Seattle, but low to mid 50s are a good bet next week with upper 30s and 40s at night.
