Arctic blast on the way

We're starting out with showers -- mainly rain, but there is some snow mixed in at fairly low elevations, and it's snowing heavily in the mountains.  This afternoon the showers turn off, it clears out and we start to get very cold around here with an invasion of Arctic air.  Today's highs will be in the low 40s.  Then temps take a dive.  It'll be dry, but cold for the Seahawks game.  Go HAWKS!  Tomorrow through Thursday will be sunny with highs only in the low-to-mid 30s and overnight lows in the mid 20s, down to the teens in outlying areas.  Friday & Saturday it'll be cloudier with perhaps a snow shower, but it's still too far out to know for sure.  Suffice it to say, you will need your warmest coat, a hat, scarf and gloves!
