Sunday snow leads to more tricky travel Monday, Tuesday

Joe’s Weather Blog Fast hitting snow early Sunday

Pacific Northwest residents who are more accustomed to rain than snow are digging out from a winter storm and bracing for more.

A quick moving system could bring a coating of snow and result in slippery conditions overnight Sunday into Monday morning before a bigger storm arrives on Tuesday.

Temperatures should reach the low 40s Sunday afternoon, so any hazardous conditions should be gone rather quickly. In Seattle, snowfall from Sunday and Monday lingered into the week as below-freezing temperatures gripped the area.

The National Weather Service said gusts hit 40 miles per hour (64 kph) in some areas, and authorities said residents on the islands' north shores should be prepared for coastal flooding. In the central part of the state, snow drifts blocked roads and forced the closure of USA 2 and Interstate 90, in addition to causing multiple auto crashes.

Gov. Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency, saying everyone in the state should focus on staying safe.

About 50,000 residents are said to have lost power across the state, U.S. media report. Heavy snow did do some damage in Yosemite National Park, where they got up to two feet in some areas.


An expansive winter storm will take shape across the northern Plains on Monday afternoon, according to AccuWeather Storm Warning Meteorologist Billy Clark.

Elsewhere, more than 148,000 customers were without electricity in MI following days of freezing rain. She grew up in southern OR, where snow is more common, and wasn't fazed by the forecast. The Consumers Energy utility said power would be restored by late February 8. A 59-year-old man died Thursday from exposure at a Seattle light rail station.

In Tualatin, Ore., resident Autumn Sang was mobbed during a visit to a grocery store to stock up on supplies.

"I love it. I'm excited about it", she said of the snow. It's like, 'Use your brain!

But more snow was possible for the region by midweek, the report said.
