More storms in store for snow-socked Pacific Northwest

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

The sun came out Sunday afternoon, however, snow returned in the evening across the Northwest, bringing 1 to 4 fresh inches (2.5 to 10 centimeters). And another storm bringing the prospect of freezing rain and snow was on tap for parts of the Seattle area. 

Sunday, snow began to make its way into the lowlands from the afternoon, the National Weather Service said. It was expected to cut in time for the Monday morning commute, but the storm was on its way later. There has been A winter storm watch in effect from Monday morning through Tuesday afternoon. Storms have delivered snow in the very first days of February to Seattle than it gets in a year. 

Temperatures were in the teens or single digits. It was 9 degrees in Arlington, Washington, early Sunday. The weather service said which was colder than the Arctic coast or North Slope of Alaska. An expected 2 feet to 4 feet (0.6 meters to 1.2 meters) from Sunday through Wednesday in the Cascades may be welcome to skiers and snowboarders, Will Ahue, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Portland, told The Oregonian. Seattle schools will be closed Monday, in addition to other area schools. 

In Northern California, the latest in a succession of storms dusted shores with snow and caused whiteout conditions. The weather service office at Eureka reported gathering snow at sea level. KIEM-TV posted photographs of Clam Beach in Arcata covered in powder. The last time Humboldt County shores saw snow was through the winter of 2002-03.
