NOVEMBER 24 – Rain and mountain snow expected to hit western Washington this weekend could make vacation trips in the Cascade Mountains especially difficult on Sunday, the National Weather Service warned Thursday.
The worst weather is expected Saturday night through late Sunday, with the heaviest snowfall covering roads in Snoqualmie, Stephens and White Pass as those who traveled for the Thanksgiving vacation try to head home. .
Cold temperatures are expected in Tacoma as the weekend rolls on, with a low of 30 degrees on Monday.
A small amount of snow is possible near the Olympic Peninsula and Cascade Mountains Friday afternoon through Saturday, but heavy precipitation is not expected Saturday evening through Sunday.
Snow is not only expected on the mountain passes. The Seattle-Tacoma area has a 50% chance of an inch or more of snow from Sunday afternoon through Wednesday afternoon.
Rain is expected to spread across the region from Friday, with another shower expected for most of Saturday, before snowfall sets in this weekend. Light breezes expected Saturday night through Sunday morning. Forecasters don’t expect widespread impacts, but the gusts could cause localized power outages and damage to tree branches.
