WHATCOM COUNTY, Wash. — Unseasonably cold and dry weather is forecast for Whatcom County next week beginning Monday following a wet and windy weekend.

There will be a possibility of snow in the Cascades and flurries in the lowlands away from the water during the transition between weather systems, especially in Whatcom County. Northeasterly winds are expected to arrive Monday, pulling frigid Artic air across Whatcom County resulting in morning temperatures at or below freezing through mid-week with dry conditions for much of the area.
