Cold front moving in could bring snow to lowlands

A cold front moved into Western Washington on Friday and could bring up to a half-inch of snow to the lowlands through Saturday (Nov. 29.)

Friday’s high temperature of 53 degrees came in the morning, with temperatures continuing to drop into the low 30s at night.

About three-quarters of an inch of rain was expected Friday in Tacoma, with winds reaching 17 miles per hour.

A light dusting of snow — up to one-half inch — could fall overnight but skies likely will be clear before 11 a.m. Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.

As the cold front sweeps through, the snow level should drop to about 300 feet from Friday’s level of between 5,000 and 6,500 feet.

A flood watch remained in several counties, including Pierce, King and Thurston.

By Saturday afternoon, skies should clear and the sun might even make an appearance, the Weather Service said. Winds whipping about 15 mph will remain through the weekend.

Sunday’s high is forecast to be 37 degrees.
