The sun was out on Sunday morning but the National Weather Service says snow will return late in the afternoon into the evening across the Northwest. The storm will then wind down Tuesday evening with any snow coming to an end before midnight Wednesday.

In comparison, Seattle normally expects 0.7 inches of snow every February. A coating of ice will be possible as well.

Meteorologist Tim Williams and Meg McNamara have been tracking the system and says we could see just over 2 inches of snow mostly north of the city with a Winter Weather Advisory going into effect from 7p.m. tonight until 10a.m. on Monday. Total snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 cm are possible before the snow tapers off Wednesday afternoon.

Snow will overspread the area during the mid/late morning on Tuesday, with all of us seeing snow by around noon.

A low pressure system brewing over the southern plains States may intensify into a winter storm as it tracks over southern Ontario Tuesday, the statement said.

Additionally, heavy snow drifts closed major highways in eastern Washington, with around 50,000 people losing power on Saturday.

The National Weather Service (NWS) advises it only takes a small amount of wintry precipitation to make roads, bridges, sidewalks and parking lots icy and unsafe.

Periods of heavy rain will last through Tuesday afternoon, before tapering off Wednesday morning. While the storm still remains more than 24 hours out, forecasters predict the North Shore and towns west of 495 have the best chance of exceeding 4 inches of snow by the time things are all said and done with this storm.
