Winter paid autumn a visit over the weekend, bringing a blowing of snow, sleet and rain to Auburn’s hills and valley.
Temperatures stayed above or just around freezing as the snow dissipated, leaving sun breaks and damp chill.
Snow and the cold are rare for this time of the year. Things are expected to warm up by mid-week, with temperatures back into the seasonal 50s and 40s.
A storm came on the heels of the storm system that came through Thursday night and Friday. The Cascades saw some snow with the highest amount just shy of a foot and a half.
The Seattle area also reported its first trace amount of snow for the season on Friday, the earliest measurable flakes since 1971.
