Adjust Comment Print

Nuisance snow will precede this storm from the northern Plains through the Great Lakes and to the interior Northeast into Sunday night. And forecasters say we could see even more snow later in the week.

The chance for snow overnight starts after 1 a.m. Monday, Feb. 11 with little or no accumulation expected.

Almost 8 inches of snow fell at Seattle-Tacoma Airport, where hundreds of flights were canceled, CBS News' Carter Evans reports.

The 6.4 inches of snow in Sea-Tac on Friday was a new daily record, and the second most in a single day in the past 20 years according to the National Weather Service.

SEATTLE-Residents of the Pacific Northwest took to neighborhood hills with skis, sleds or even just laundry baskets February 9 to celebrate an unusual dump of snow in a region more accustomed to winter rain.

Temperatures should reach the low 40s Sunday afternoon, so any hazardous conditions should be gone rather quickly. In the central part of the state, snow drifts blocked roads and forced the closure of US 2 and Interstate 90, in addition to causing multiple auto crashes.

This is the latest information we have on this next winter storm and we will continue to provide updates right here on weau.com and of course on all of our WEAU 13 News segments through the day.

Hundreds of flights have been cancelled at Washington's Seattle-Tacoma and Portland International airports in recent days.

Autumn Sang was at a mobbed grocery store in Tualatin, Oregon, on Friday stocking up for the coming storm for herself and her neighbor, who is disabled and doesn't have a auto. Cars are pictured driving on snow and ice on Interstate 405 approaching Kirkland, Washington, on Saturday.

The National Weather Service is predicting southern Minnesota will be visited by another snow storm on Sunday and that could be followed by a major storm early next week. As a cold front moves through Tuesday night, some gusty showers and a few thunderstorms will be possible.
