A winter-weather advisory was in effect for the Olympia area until 9 a.m. Sunday, and the region could see a trace of snow in the lowlands to two inches at higher elevations tonight through Sunday morning, according to the National Weather Service. In the lowlands, the snow was expected to change to rain.
Temperatures tonight are expected to dip to 31 degrees – much warmer than the record-setting 8 degrees recorded Saturday morning – then rise to the lower to mid-40s Sunday, meteorologist Johnny Burg said. Sunday night’s low is expected to fall to 34 degrees, he said.
The 8-degree temperature recorded this morning in the Olympia area broke a record of 13 degrees for the date set Feb. 26, 1962.
