Snow possible early Wednesday across hills of Western Washington

Snow might fall early Christmas Eve in Western Washington, but it won’t stick around long.

Places above 500 feet, such as areas of East Pierce County, could see snow overnight Tuesday and into early Wednesday morning, the National Weather Service Office in Seattle reported.

“It’s still pretty uncertain right now if that will occur or not,” meteorologist Johnny Burg said. “If it does, we’re not expecting any really big amounts.”

If some does accumulate, temperatures in the mid 40s will quickly get rid of it, Burg said.

A “worst-case scenario” forecast showed a few inches of snow on the ground during the morning commute, in the hills between Snohomish County and Chehalis, the Weather Service said in a statement.
