Possibility of snow moves in from the north Sunday night

Accumulations, if any, difficult to predict

Snow is a possibility Sunday night into Monday morning, but forecasters expect accumulations to be “pretty light, if anything,” in Grays Harbor County, according to forecaster Samantha Borth with the National Weather Service in Seattle.

As of late Friday afternoon, she said there is still a lot of uncertainty about the exact locations that may see snow and any potential accumulations. She said models at that time were trending to show the potential from Olympia to “a little south.”

According to a special weather statement from the Weather Service, “Snow levels will be close to sea level,” and “Given the showery nature of this system, snow amounts will not be uniform across the region. However, heavy accumulations are possible with stronger showers.”

Forecast temperatures in Hoquiam are expected to be around 30 degrees Sunday night, 38 degrees Monday and 28 degrees Monday night. Snow accumulations are expected to be around an inch or less throughout the county with drier weather coming Tuesday.

“It will be cooler, but we’re expecting it to dry out early next week,” said Borth. The chance of rain or snow showers stands at 60 percent in Hoquiam for Sunday night, 40 percent Monday and a “slight chance” Monday night.

In Pacific County, Raymond’s chance of snow and/or rain is 90 percent Sunday, 70 percent Sunday night with a low of 29 degrees, then snow showers turning to rain and snow showers Monday. A slight chance of rain then snow showers overnight Monday with a low of 26 gives way to drier skies Tuesday. Accumulations of a 1-3 inches are possible Sunday night into Monday. The snow level in the Willapa Hills is expected to be 500-1,000 feet Sunday night.
