Expect blustery, soggy conditions throughout Wednesday and, perhaps, snow in the days ahead.
National Weather Service meteorologists in Seattle predict winds between 16 and 24 mph in the Issaquah area during the day and into the night.
Meanwhile, expect a soaking as a low-pressure system moves from the Gulf of Alaska into the Pacific Northwest.
Come Friday night, as the snow level dips from 1,000 feet to 300 feet and low temperatures fall into the upper 20s, lowland residents in the Issaquah area could see snowflakes. (The summit of Tiger Mountain is 3,004 feet above sea level and the Issaquah Highlands start at about 500 feet above sea level.)
Meteorologists said little or no accumulation is expected.
More snow and rain is possible early Saturday morning, but little or no accumulation is expected then, either.
The forecast prompted the King County Road Services Division to prepare crews for ice and snow removal on rural and unincorporated roads.
