Seattle weather: Last warm day in Western Washington for a while

Tuesday will be the last warm and sunny day for a while, as a much cooler and wetter weather pattern sets up through the weekend.

High pressure over the Pacific Northwest will bring warm filtered sunshine, with high clouds Monday. Highs will be close to 70 degrees in the central and south Puget Sound areas.

Onshore flow will push in clouds and showers Wednesday. The best chance for rain will be in the higher elevations, though anyone could see a light shower or two.

Widespread rain will hit Thursday as a trough moves inland. This will also usher in a cooler airmass, dropping high temperatures into the mid 50s.

With the colder air in place, snow levels will drop on Wednesday, down to around 4,000 feet. Snow levels will bounce between 4,000 adn 5,000 feet through the weekend, which could mean some light snow accumulations or a rain and snow mix over the higher mountain passes.
