    Seattleites woke up to rare winter powder Friday after an overnight weather system brought 1 to 3 inches of snow to the city and other parts of Washington state.

    The southwest interior including Chehalis got hit the heaviest with about 3 to 5 inches overnight. Seattle-Tacoma International Airport recorded 2 inches of snow.

      Snow was changing over to rain for most in the region, beginning in the south and moving north. Q13 meteorologist M.J. McDermott says this afternoon it's all rain with highs near 40 degrees.

      Q13 meteorologist Walter Kelley says Bellingham should stay snowy longer into the night but still not expecting much up there.

      Friday warms enough that the lowlands should just see passing rain showers.

      Saturday and Sunday have passing rain showers but the snow level is low around 1000 feet. That means the mountains keep snow going all weekend.

      M.J. says Tuesday through Thursday of next week look clear and cold again — with highs in the mid/upper 30s and overnight lows down to the 20s.
