Wet weather will stick around into the work week
Wet weather will stick around into the work week

Following some drizzle from Saturday night, wet pavement in place and lows set to drop into the 30s by dawn, the next weather problem may be ice.  It won't be widespread, as most of us will see our temps bottom out in the middle 30s by early Sunday morning.  However, some of the colder pockets like Bremerton and Olympia will hover closer to freezing, so spotty icy roadways may be a driving issue early Sunday around the South Sound or Kitsap Peninsula.

Sunday afternoon will feature a few more spotty showers alternating with a few sun breaks, and highs will hover on either side of 40.  Sunday night looks dry, but widespread thick fog will make for low visibility on the Monday morning commute.  Monday afternoon looks dry and partly to mostly sunny, and highs will hit the low 40s for the first day of the work week.

A pair of weak December storms will come through mid-week: the first one due in later Tuesday, and a second one by Wednesday night.  Therefore, we'll stay showery-at-times all the way into Thursday.  Lows will stay in the 30s, and highs will top out in the low to middle 40s--pretty typical for mid-December.  The mountains will pick up a few more inches of snow as each disturbance goes by.

At this point, Friday and Saturday are looking dry and chilly--the final weekend of fall may turn out to be a nice one.  We'll keep you posted.

Until then, keep dry and warm!
