After a transition day Friday, the National Weather Service says the first front will hit Western Washington on Saturday with additional frontal systems on Sunday and Monday, and the wet pattern will continue through the week.
    
Precipitation totals through Thanksgiving could be 3 to 6 inches on the coast and 1 to 5 inches in the Western Washington lowlands.
    
Forecasters say snow in the Cascades is likely to affect travel through the mountain passes.
    
Rain with mountain snow also is forecast for Eastern Washington. There's a chance of valley snow north of I-90 on Thanksgiving.
