Seattle Weather Forecast: Significant Snowfall Expected in the Lowlands 

With much of the Seattle area already seeing some snow, it seems Mother Nature is honoring

the calendar with wintry conditions, just in time for the solstice.

The national weather service issued a winter typhoon forecast with up to 7 inches of snow as of 7 p.m.

Monday through Tuesday nights in the western Washington lowlands, consisting of King, Pierce, and Snohomish counties.

"It's still a tough forecast," said Kayla Mazurkiewicz, a meteorologist with the weather service

 "but it looks like north of Seattle, in the higher foothills, it's probably going to hit the top of that range."

For the greater Seattle area and most of King County, at least 2 inches of snow is expected

with models showing up to four inches overall, according to the weather company.
