SEATTLE, Wash. - The National Weather Service says Arctic air pushing into the Northwest will keep temperatures unseasonably cold all week, but there's no sign of significant snow.
     
Meteorologist Mike McFarland in the Seattle office says the cold spell is caused by a dry air mass.

The clear skies at night are dropping some lows into the single digits and below zero in Eastern
Washington.

Wind chills as cold as 16 degrees below zero are expected overnight into Tuesday.

Winds have decreased from Sunday's 40 to 50 mile per hour gusts, but will Spokane will remain breezy through Monday afternoon with gusts in the 20 to 30 mile per hour gusts.

Lighter winds are expected beginning Tuesday, but temperatures will not reach 20 degrees until Thursday, with 30s expected by Sunday.

The next chance of snow for lower elevations in the Spokane area begins Saturday and continues through the weekend.

Western Washington is having a good hard freeze with lows in the teens and highs in the 30s.
     
McFarland says this is the kind of freeze-your-pipes cold that only hits Western Washington once or twice a winter, typically.
     
He says the temperatures should start to moderate by the end of the week.
