More snow? Say it ain’t so!

The National Weather Service issued another winter storm watch, with heaviest snowfall anticipated Monday into Tuesday.

BREMERTON — As Kitsap County digs itself out of one of its most potent snow storms in years, the National Weather Service said Saturday that more winter weather might be on the way.

Forecasters issued two winter storm watches for systems anticipated to move into the Puget Sound area Sunday and Monday. According to an advisory published Saturday evening, more snow is predicted in the Western Washington lowlands beginning Sunday afternoon, and lasting through Tuesday. The heaviest snow is forecasted for Monday and Tuesday.

Snowfall is anticipated to roll into Kitsap County beginning Sunday evening, with light accumulation of 1 to 3 inches, the NWS forecasted. After a break, the next system is anticipated to arrive around Monday afternoon.

A total accumulation of up to 5 to 8 inches is possible, the NWS said, although “uncertainties still exist in regards to snow amounts.”

The “2nd weather system arriving Monday afternoon through Tuesday will have considerably more moisture, but could pull some slightly warmer air in from the coast,” the NWS said in a statement Sunday. “This may create a potentially messy, winter weather situation.”

“This is still a developing situation and there are a host of possible outcomes,” the statement read.

Snowfall over the last several days in Western Washington has been helped by record low temperatures. On Saturday the low in Olympia was 9 degrees, its first reading below 10 degrees in eight years, the NWS reported. Lows in Bremerton dipped to 15 degrees early Sunday morning.
