Light snow fell overnight Saturday night and Sunday morning, at the start of a week with temperatures never getting above freezing, according to the National Weather Service.

Sun broke out late Sunday morning, and the forecast calls for improving conditions, but lower temperatures during the day Sunday, with a low of 21 forecast for Anacortes tonight. Burlington airport recorded a low of 28 degrees this morning. 

Overnight lows are expected to stay in the low 20’s for the first half of the week, with daytime highs in the 30’s, right around freezing.

Right now, forecasters say Wednesday looks to be the warmest day of the week, with a high forecast at 35. But, there’s also a chance of snow on Wednesday, as another Arctic storm blows through northwest Washington. At the moment, the National Weather Service says there’s no end in sight for freezing temperatures.

Anacortes won’t have the lowest temperatures in the area. In the upper Skagit River area, overnight lows will be in the single digits.

Meanwhile, Mount Baker Ski Area opened Sunday with 7-day-a-week operations. They’re reporting a 35 inch base.
