Pacific Northwest residents, more accustomed to rain than snow, found themselves digging out yet again as a fresh round of storms moved over the area, with an additional punch to come early this week.

In Washington, the National Weather Service told people to anticipate steady snowfall from Sunday afternoon in the Olympic Peninsula, spreading into the Puget Sound area by evening.

Meanwhile on Sunday, snow flew across much of the Northland, with the National Weather Service office in Duluth recording 2 inches by 6 p.m. "Totals out of this system will be between 7-11" with areas of blowing snow as well.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the entire state for a period of snow, followed by a change to wintry mix and rain.

A quick moving system could bring a coating of snow and result in slippery conditions overnight Sunday into Monday morning before a bigger storm arrives on Tuesday. Temperatures will be in the teens for next weekend.

Seattle schools will be closed Monday. There's a possibility of around an inch of snow and sleet accumulation possible.

Scattered snow showers for Wednesday with highs near 30.

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

Interstate 405 was covered with snow and ice, but vehicles still passed through on Saturday.

Another blast of winter weather is expected to hit the Capital with 25 to 35 cm of snow in the forecast.

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