After a few snow showers sprung up across the area on Monday, the rest of the Seattle-area workweek will clear to mostly sunny skies through the weekend.
Highs for the latter part of the week will take a slight dip compared to Monday, with highs moderating in the middle 30s until Friday. For the weekend, temperatures will dip even further into the lower 30s and down into the upper 20s for daytime highs.
Each day will feature mostly sunny skies with some times of passing clouds. Overnight lows through Thursday will be in the lower 20s and will take a sharp dive into the mid- and upper teens for the weekend.
Windiness and other factors may make temperatures feels even colder than they actually are, nearly 10 degrees lower at the start of the week but diminishing to only a degree or two difference by the start of the weekend.
The next good chance of precipitation in the area will be next Monday, when some cold rain and early morning ice will likely disrupt some travel.
