As a train of storms continues off the Pacific Ocean, colder air will press farther south over the weekend into the Seattle area.

Temperatures will dip to their lowest levels of the season so far during the day and night this weekend. High temperatures will be within a few degrees of 50. Temperatures can dip into the 30s at night.

While it will not get cold enough to snow in the Seattle-Tacoma metro area Saturday and Sunday, the event will bring the lowest snow levels of the season so far. By the end of the weekend snow levels will be in the vicinity of 2,500 to 3,000 feet.

It will snow at pass level. The first slushy accumulation is possible on roadways over Snoqualmie Pass.

Temperatures will not be in a hurry to bounce back early next week.
