Cool air will linger in Seattle late in the week with temperatures hovering around 50 degrees, around 5 degrees below average.

Despite cooler weather, sunshine will return Friday as the weekend approaches.

"On Friday, high pressure will build in the area with more sunshine," Meteorologist Brian Edwards said.

Overnight lows will stay above freezing in the mid-30s.

Snow levels in the Cascade Range are low at approximately 1,000 feet, he added, which is well below the pass level.

"Travelers coming across Snoqualmie Pass or Stevens Pass will likely encounter snow covered roads and slippery road conditions," he said.

By the weekend, temperatures will begin to climb.

"By Saturday, temperatures will be closer to average," Edwards said. "For Sunday and into Monday, we could approach the low 60s."
