As the used-car commercials like to say: Sunday, Sunday, Sunday.
If you're craving some powder turns, Sunday is going to be your best bet this weekend. Thanks to rising freezing levels and warm temperatures, most local resorts are going to see rain showers Friday and Saturday.
But things should improve by Sunday, with snow in the forecast overnight Saturday at most ski areas. Freezing levels will also be dropping and temperatures cooling down.
Summit at Snoqualmie: Snoqualmie is currently reporting light rain, which could continue into Friday morning and make a return appearance on Saturday evening. Going into Sunday, the snow level will lower to 2,800 feet, and snow showers will be likely Sunday morning. High temperatures in the mid-40s on Friday and Saturday will cool down to the mid-30s on Sunday. Alpental is reporting 25 inches of snow at the summit in the last three days.

Crystal Mountain: Snow is in the forecast for Thursday night and Saturday night into Sunday. Accumulations of 3 to 5 inches possible Saturday night, with another 1 to 2 inches possible on Sunday.

Stevens Pass: Rising freezing levels will bring rain tonight and tomorrow, followed by snow Saturday night into Sunday.
