Snow is sending 2016 on its way on New Year’s Eve.
Flakes were falling in Tacoma as early as 12:30 p.m. Saturday.
The National Weather Service was calling for light amounts of snow across much of Western Washington late Saturday and into New Year’s Day.
Starting late Sunday, temperatures will begin to plummet, resulting in hard freezes.
Lows are expected in the teens and 20s. Afternoon highs will only reach the upper-20s to mid-30s.
“This pattern may continue through the end of next week,” the NWS said Saturday.
