The Olympia area can expect snow Monday — anything from flurries to a light dusting — followed by freezing drizzle overnight that could make things slippery Tuesday morning, a meteorologist said Sunday.

The cold front should lift after that, with high temperatures expected to rise above freezing Tuesday afternoon and stay there the rest of the week, said Andy Haner with the National Weather Service.

The overnight low Saturday at the Olympia Regional Airport was 11 degrees.

Wednesday is expected to be more dry than wet, followed by a more typical Western Washington weather pattern of rainy and breezy conditions, he said.

The forecast high is 32 degrees Monday; it should dip into the 20s Tuesday morning before rising above freezing, Haner said. There are no burn bans for Thurston or Mason counties.
