Rain expected to return in time for work week

Showers are moving into our area as we speak and they are meeting up with some left over cold air from overnight. That is giving us a few light snow flurries in places like Port Orchard this morning. Most areas are above freezing so we don't expect any accumulations.

Clouds and rain will increase today as a very soggy system pushes through western Washington. Plan on highs to hit the mid-to-upper 40s.

Our snow level is currently sitting at 2500 feet. That means this front will dump heavy snow at times across our passes. Right now there is a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for much of the Cascades starting Sunday afternoon. We expect up to 8" of new snow by Monday morning. Be prepared for winter driving conditions all across the mountains with a WINTER STORM WARNING up for parts of central Washington with up to 11" of snow in places like Easton and Cle Elum.

The Monday morning commute will be a wet one with steady rain to start the day. Rain will turn to showers by the afternoon under mostly cloudy skies.  You can expect gusty winds along the coast as we get on the back side of the approaching front.

Tuesday we throw in a few sunbreaks with highs in the low 50s.
