Sacramento Weather: Storm Arriving By Evening Commute, Foothills Could Again See Snow

Seattle area could see 5 to 8 inches of snow in next blast — and even more later

The state of Washington has been hit by a major snowstorm as Seattle recorded more than half a foot of snow by Saturday morning, topping the city's yearly average. The city averages about an inch less than that annually, NWS meteorologist Jacob DeFlitch told The Seattle Times.

One of the largest snowstorms in more than 20 years could pummel the Tacoma-Seattle area this weekend with up to 8 inches, forecasters said. Higher elevation areas such as the Teton Valley, the Snake River Highlands, or near Island Park might see between 6 and 12 inches of snow.

About 200 flights were canceled at Seattle-Tacoma and Portland worldwide airports Saturday, roughly matching the number of Friday cancellations.

Hold on: The weather service is looking at the possibility of more snow in the Pacific Northwest on Monday and Tuesday and again later next week. Eighteen inches were tallied in Agnew, 16 inches in Sequim and 11 inches in Port Orchard.

"This pattern really is not going to change over one or two weeks", DeFlitch said.

Recent cold weather and snow has been affecting other states too.

Washington's Governor, Jay Inslee, declared an emergency across the state on Friday.

"Everyone in our state needs to focus on preparing for the snow and staying safe", Inslee said in a statement.

"Forecasters predict this may be a storm unlike one we've seen in many years", he said.

This will include a refundable tax credit, through the state's Excelsior Program, of up to $1.2 billion over the next 10 years. Michael Gianaris-a fierce Amazon critic-was named to a board that has the power to veto the agreement.


More snowfall is expected Saturday, and officials are prepared. The wind gusts could reach anywhere from 20-30 miles per hour in the Seattle area, while the northern Puget Sound and Olympics region could see gusts of 60 miles per hour.

Temperatures are expected to remain below freezing until Monday afternoon, CNN's Brink said, with the forecast high expected to hit 35 degrees F. The windchill would feel like it's in the teens.

Stay tuned for updates regarding both weather systems.

Officials say the combination of falling, blowing and drifting snow may lead to hard travel conditions across the region due to snow covered roads and reduced visibility.

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

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