Temperatures were colder than forecasted today, so the rain showers we were expecting to start with quickly turned into or started as snow showers instead. Graupel was also present in the initial band of precipitation for the first 30 minutes or so this afternoon.

The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a Winter Weather Advisory in effect until 7am Monday morning. Snow accumulations so far this evening have been a little over 2 inches inland, at places such as the North City neighborhood. Additional accumulations are expected as another band of precipitation moves through overnight Sunday into Monday morning with temperatures in the upper 20's.

Expect an additional 1-3" of snow possible overnight. With the lower temperatures, snow is likely to start sticking to the roads. Tough travel conditions are expected Monday morning, especially on neighborhood streets that haven't been treated yet.

For the rest of Monday, winds are expected to increase out of the north, with gusts to 40mph possible. Temperatures reaching the mid 30's for a high, with lows into the low 20's. We could even break into the teens still.

Rest of the week looks cold, sunny, highs in the 30's, lows in the 20's with our next weather system moving in Wednesday night to bring us another round of snow. I'll have more details on that system as we get closer to the middle of the week.
