Storm-Buried Pacific Northwest Faces More Impending Snow

Snow is forecast to transition to an icy mix in this corridor from late Monday through Monday night.

That hasn't stopped Seattle's dogs from making the most of the surprise snow day. And wouldn't you know it, the city's canine residents can't get enough.

The Pacific Northwest snowstorm also left almost 50,000 people in eastern Washington without electricity.

Snow and ice pellets are expected to arrive after midnight Monday, then will change through freezing rain to rain Tuesday as milder air arrives briefly.

Temperatures are in the teens or single digits.

It was 9 degrees in Arlington, Washington early Sunday.

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.

Several hundred people took advantage of the unusual weather and got outside to have a little fun with it. Hundreds of people in Tacoma turned out for a snowball fight in a park after someone suggested it on Facebook. The snow will continue into Sunday night.

Interstate 405 was covered with snow and ice, but vehicles still passed through on Saturday. Scores of flights were cancelled or delayed at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Our next system will bring rain Friday into early Saturday morning.
