UPDATE
Rinse and repeat here in this evening's update. Another night of scattered showers tracking across the area. Snow levels will be rather low tonight, around 500 ft or so. Under heavier showers, snow could mix down to the lowland surface but no significant accumulation is expected. Overnight temps are to fall into the low to mid 30s.

SYNOPSIS
An upper level and surface trough will continue to produce mixed precipitation into Monday. Heavy snow is ongoing in the north Cascades, where a winter weather advisory has been issued for the eastern portions of Whatcom and Skagit counties through Monday afternoon for areas above 500 feet. While a weak ridge will move overhead midweek, a stationary front will keep a slight chance of precipitation in the forecast for the Cascades and Olympics. Precipitation is expected to return to finish the work week. Temperatures will remain below average through the end of the week.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
An upper level trough remains over southern B.C. Canada tonight, with ridging over Alaska and the northern Great Plains keeping the low virtually parked overhead throughout the weekend. The pattern finally begins to break to the east, allowing the upper-level low to begin to depart the region Monday afternoon. In the mid-levels, the low/trough essentially splits into two, with one feature remaining over in Canada, and a shortwave trough ejecting down into Washington/Oregon Monday afternoon that weakens/fills in as it moves onto shore. The surface trough will also break down as the shortwave moves onto shore (that has been a focus area for mixed precipitation this weekend). Temperatures aloft remain cool for this time of year, with 500 mb temps around -37 degrees celsius.
700 and 850 mb flow remains virtually onshore with moist air out ahead of the trough, and north flow beginning to wrap around the backside of the trough, bringing in cooler and drier air behind the system Sunday/Monday.

Mixed precipitation showers will continue along the coast and interior region tonight, and track towards Puget Sound Monday.
The lightest showers are expected to produce rain, but the heaviest showers will have mixed precipitation as the air cools via evaporation, allowing for snow and possibly graupel to mix down to the ground. There will be a break in activity early Monday morning before additional showers move in late morning/early afternoon.

For the north Cascades, heavy snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour have been observed in around the Mt. Baker area Sunday afternoon. Ensemble guidance indicates most of the snow accumulations sticking at elevations greater than 500 feet (based on the snow levels). A winter weather advisory was issued from through Monday afternoon to cover the threat of heavy snow. Most likely accumulations will be anywhere from 3 inches in the lower areas/valleys, to 11 inches in the mountains. Remaining Cascades passes will see a couple inches of snow, with higher amounts expected on Mount Rainier.

Tuesday/Wednesday will dry out with the disturbance departing to the east, allowing for skies to clear out some Tuesday and a little on Wednesday. A stationary front will remain in the vicinity of the region however. This will keep a slight chance of precipitation in the Cascades/Olympics. Temperatures will also remain steady with highs in the 40s, and lows in the low 30s for the lowlands. Winds will become light and variable Tuesday into Wednesday.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
Ensembles/deterministic models show the ridge departing to the east on Friday with a trough moving in from Alaska. This will return the chance of precipitation Friday into next weekend. An increase in temperatures to seasonal averages (highs in the 50s) will omit the threat for snow in the forecast for most areas (except the Cascades and Olympics).
