    Weather Anchor Mike McCabe is warning people about the winter weather that is expected.

    He wants you to prepare for much colder temps and snow likely Monday through early Tuesday.

    There is a slight chance of snow is possible overnight, and as the temperature drops below freezing overnight you can expect roadways to become slick in spots as the recent light rain and wet roadways may freeze over early tomorrow morning.

    The best chance of snow in the Basin and Central Washington will happen later Monday and into Tuesday as a low and potent cold front along the coast will move inland and bring accumulating snow to much of eastern Oregon.

    Some of that moisture is likely to move into the Basin and Central Washington, this is where we will see our best chance of some accumulating snow.

    Aside from the snow potential the big headline for the first week of February will be the cold temps.

    Highs will only reach the upper 20's and lows into the upper teens, this will be the coldest temps so far of the winter season.

    Prepare for breezy conditions at times as well, this will make the temperature outside feel even colder when you factor in the wind chill.

    The tricky part over the next few days will be the snowfall potential, after looking at several different computer models they all seem to be all over the place when it comes to the snow.

    The biggest factor all depends on that low off the coast and how far inland it will track, one we are certain of will be the much colder temps.

    Be prepared and plan accordingly.
