Temperatures in the low 30s and a drop in the snow level mean snow is possible overnight Thursday in the Issaquah area.

National Weather Service meteorologists in Seattle said rain should continue overnight and then possibly turn to snow in the early morning hours. The snow level is also expected to dip to 900 feet overnight.

(The summit of Tiger Mountain is 3,004 feet above sea level and the Issaquah Highlands start at about 500 feet above sea level.)

Forecasters expect little or no snow accumulation Thursday and Friday.

Expect snow and rain Friday morning, although the precipitation is expected to turn rain only after 10 a.m. Forecasters said the snow level should dip to 400 feet Friday night.

The forecast prompted the King County Road Services Division to prepare crews for ice and snow removal on rural and unincorporated roads.

Meanwhile, city officials urged residents to prepare for cold temperatures and ready vehicles for driving in wintry conditions.
