Snow is likely early Friday in the South Sound, according to National Weather Service forecasts.
Lingering low temperatures will interact with an oncoming weather front to bring snow to low-lying areas of the region from about 4 to 10 a.m.
Less than an inch of accumulation is possible, the Weather Service said.
After the snow is gone, a return to rain is expected, with high temperatures in the low- to mid-40s and lows in the mid-30s through Tuesday.
Each day until then is expected to at least see showers.
As for Thursday, high temperatures are expected to reach 41 degrees in Tacoma, with the low around 26. Clouds will be increasing throughout the day.
