There’s still a chance of snow Monday for the Olympia area, but there’s an even greater chance of snow by the end of the week, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service said Sunday afternoon.

The Olympia-area lowlands might get snow Monday, as temperatures are expected to fall throughout the day. The chance of snow accumulation is better at higher elevations, such as in the Black Hills or on Tumwater Hill.

“There’s also a chance you might not see anything,” said Josh Smith of the National Weather Service.

After Monday, temperatures are expected to fall, with highs around the freezing mark the rest of the week.

Overnight temperatures will fall into the 20s, Smith said.

Combine that colder air with precipitation and it might become snow.

“There’s definitely more of a chance of snow by the end of the week,” Smith said.

Other parts of Western Washington should feel the cold snap before Thurston County does.

Forecasters are warning that conditions could snarl traffic for drivers heading to the Seattle Seahawks football game Monday night at CenturyLink Field.

The forecast calls for freezing temperatures and possible snow north of Everett by early Monday; with the cold arriving in the Seattle area by Monday afternoon.
