Snow showers forecast Saturday in W Washington



SEATTLE (AP) — It appears that the snow showers forecast for Western Washington will arrive sooner than expected — late Saturday morning instead of Saturday night or Sunday.

Meteorologist Dennis D’Amico at the National Weather Service office in Seattle says amounts of an inch or less are expected into Monday in much of the usually snow-free lowlands, with higher amounts possible in the convergence zone north of Seattle and higher elevations east of Puget Sound.

Cascade ski resorts can expect a good Martin Luther King holiday weekend with a foot or more at Mount Baker and somewhat less at Snoqualmie Pass.

D’Amico says snow also is forecast for Eastern Washington valleys with an inch possible at Spokane.

He says there’s a chance of a bigger, more widespread snow Tuesday or Wednesday in Washington.
