 ...WINTRY WEATHER POSSIBLE LATER THIS WEEK FOR THE LOWLANDS OF WESTERN WASHINGTON... Cold air over British Columbia is likely to push south into Western Washington this week. Fraser outflow into the Bellingham area should increase--with cold wind chills by Thursday across Whatcom county. Windy conditions are likely to affect the San Juans islands as well--with northeasterly gales likely across the waters by Thursday. Areas farther south and near the coast will also see a cooing trend--but could avoid a hard freeze. After the colder air arrives, a front might reach the area with a chance of snow Thursday and Friday. 
Stay tuned to NOAA weather radio, weather.gov, or your favorite source of weather information in the days ahead as the forecast is updated. $$ www.weather.gov/seattle

One of the Wx Weenies I follow claims the possibility of 15 inches of snow by Friday evening with only (only!) half of that sticking. Sure, and pigs will fly jumbo jets and I'll pass my Extra.

...PERIODS OF MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL WILL LEAD TO AN INCREASED
THREAT OF LANDSLIDES IN WESTERN WASHINGTON...

Elevated soil moisture across Western Washington will increase to
near threshold as another round of moderate to heavy rain spreads
across the region this evening. Additional rainfall amounts of 1
to 2 inches in the lowlands and 2 to 4 inches in portions of the
Olympics and Cascades can be expected through Monday night. This
will put extra pressure on soil instability, leading to an
increased threat of landslides during this time period. The
highest rainfall totals will be focused across the Olympics and
Central/Southern Cascades where the landslide risk will be
highest.
