Snow possible for Whatcom County lowlands over weekend


Whatcom County lowlands could get some snow this weekend, as the snow level is forecasted to drop to sea level Sunday night, Feb. 23, according to the National Weather Service.

There is still some uncertainty about the forecast, meteorologist Johnny Burg said, but there is a possibility of snowfall starting Saturday afternoon as cold air from the British Columbia interior spreads into northwest Washington.

The snow level is forecasted to drop to 300 feet Saturday night as temperatures could dip into the upper 20s to mid-30s. On Sunday, the snow level could get down to sea level with lows around 30 degrees.

Higher elevations will probably see more snow, but there were no forecasts for how much snow Whatcom County could get over the weekend.

Temperatures will still be cool Monday, with the snow level forecasted to rise up to 500 feet.

Things are expected to warm up after Monday.
