Hint of snow for Washington's mountain roads this week

If you plan a trip over Washington's mountain passes Tuesday morning, check the forecast.

A front is bringing colder weather briefly to the region and temperatures will dip overnight, said Kirby Cook, science and operations officer with the National Weather Service.

"Snow levels in the mountains are going to drop to 3,000 feet by early tomorrow morning," he said. "So any precipitation that falls up there down to about 3000 feet is going to fall as snow."

Closer to Seattle, expect an overnight low in the mid-40s Monday night.

Cook said it'll be a little cooler Tuesday night, with some areas seeing temperatures into the 30s.

Temperatures will start rising again mid-week.
