Fresh snow on Mount Baker gleams in the sunshine on Dec. 24.

Skagit County could see its lowest temperatures of the season next week and snow may begin to fall on Sunday.

A cold front is forecast to move into Western Washington from Sunday through Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service’s Seattle Office.

Temperatures are forecast to dip into the 20s throughout much of Skagit County, with Concrete and areas farther east possibly dipping into the teens, according to the seven-day forecast.

The drop in temperatures could bring snow to areas throughout the county, with the forecast suggesting up to 3 inches in the Mount Vernon area, up to 2 in the Sedro-Woolley area and up to 1 inch in areas including Anacortes and Concrete.

That snow could accumulate Sunday through Tuesday, with the majority forecast to fall between 10 p.m. Sunday and 10 a.m. Monday, according to the forecast.

The cold front is coming from the north and may bring damaging winds, according to the weather service. With temperatures forecast to be below freezing, icy roadways are also possible.
