Sunday: Sunny in the morning, then some afternoon clouds.
In central Washington, blowing snow and drifts 3 to 4 feet deep forced the closure of USA 2 and Interstate 90. These areas will see more of a rain and snow mix throughout the event cutting down on the total snowfall accumulation.
Over Sunday night, snow was expected to be confined to the mountains, with a "VERY BRIEF" break on Monday morning before another winter system began dropping snow in the Seattle area.
In these areas, there can be 6-12 inches of snow with an AccuWeather Local StormMax™ of 18 inches.
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.
In California, more than 120 visitors and staff members were rescued Thursday after being trapped by up to 7 feet of snow in a Sierra Nevada resort for five days.
Temperatures on Sunday will be in the upper 30s to low 40s but winter precipitation arrives late Sunday evening into the overnight. By Monday afternoon, more significant snow develops and continues through Tuesday.
Another winter storm was on the way to the region.
About 200 flights were cancelled at Seattle-Tacoma and Portland worldwide airports Saturday, roughly matching the number of Friday cancellations.
But more snow was possible for the region by midweek, the report said.
Snow is expected to fall and create slippery conditions from Bismarck, North Dakota to Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Minneapolis; Des Moines and Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Madison, Milwaukee and Green Bay, Wisconsin; and Traverse City and Marquette, Michigan.
In Seattle, where such snow is a rarity, residents cleared out grocery store shelves and left work early Friday afternoon as the storm arrived.
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.
