Two more ‘significant’ winter storms headed for western Washington

Two more ‘significant’ winter storms headed for western Washington

Pacific Northwest residents who are more accustomed to rain than snow are digging out from a winter storm and bracing for more.

Up to 7 feet (2 meters) of snow had trapped the guests and staff beginning Sunday at Montecito Sequoia Lodge in Kings Canyon National Park, U.S. Forest Service spokesman Alicia Embrey said.

During that time, 3 to 6 inches of snow is anticipating with the possibility of freezing rain mixed in Tuesday night.

Forecasters said Portland, Oregon, could get up to 4 inches (10 centimeters) of snow later in the day, with two more snowstorms expected to hit the city next week.

Starting early on this Sunday morning we are experiencing temperatures in the upper 20s and lower 30s with wind chill values in the teens.

Snowfall from Sunday and Monday lingered into the week as below-freezing temperatures gripped the area. The weather service said that was colder than the Arctic coast or North Slope of Alaska.

In Portland, a tanker truck blocked a ramp for hours after sliding into a vehicle on an interchange between Interstates 5 and 84.

About 180 people spent the night at an emergency shelter set up at Seattle Center, with officials going out again on February 9 to get other homeless residents to safety.

The report also noted that warming is being felt most in the Arctic , where sea ice continues to melt, raising the sea level. Since the 1880s, the average global surface temperature has risen about 2 degrees Fahrenheit (1 degree Celsius).

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

More than a foot of snow (30.5 cm) was recorded by Saturday morning on the Olympic Peninsula.

An expansive winter storm will take shape across the northern Plains on Monday afternoon, according to AccuWeather Storm Warning Meteorologist Billy Clark.

In Washington, about 50,000 people lost power.

DC will see light snow switching over to a mixture of sleet and rain Monday morning.

Residents in Seattle cleared out grocery store shelves and left work early on Friday afternoon as the storm arrived. "I think that Portlanders, majority are city people and they come from a lot of different places, so they're not so used to it".

But more snow was possible for the region by midweek, the report said.
