Seattle, Western Washington Hunker Down As Snow Arrives
Though forecasters have scaled back from ominous predictions of up to 10 inches of snow today in Seattle and 4 feet in the Cascade Mountains, it's still going to be "a mess" in much of western Washington State today, The Seattle Times reports.
It's now expected the city will get several inches of snow between now and Thursday, with rain mixing in at times, according to the National Weather Service. The Cascades are likely to get a couple feet of snow.
Still, "Seattle Public Schools will be closed Wednesday," KING-TV says.
And to the south a bit in Olympia, up to 7 inches of snow could fall today. The Olympian newspaper says folks there are being advised to stay home and that "an avalanche warning is in effect for the Olympic and Cascade mountains, where danger is extreme."
