  • Seattle receives the most snow in 70 years, bitter cold temperatures expected

An unusually powerful winter storm dropped over six inches on the Pacific Northwest city February 9 - a "new daily record" according to the National Weather Service, which also happens to report that more snow is on the way.

The 6.4 inches of snow in Sea-Tac on Friday was a new daily record, and the second most in a single day in the past 20 years according to the National Weather Service.

Snow began falling north of Seattle with some areas recording 8 inches (20 centimeters) of snow before it made its way south and enveloped the city.

There can be a rapid freeze-up in the lower Ohio Valley later Tuesday as temperatures plunge behind the rain, causing any lingering wet areas to turn to ice.

Two more significant winter storms are expected to blanket western Washington with more snow starting Sunday afternoon.

The weather service says that was colder than the Arctic coast or North Slope of Alaska.

In Portland, a tanker truck slid into a sport-utility vehicle on an interchange between Interstates 5 and 84 on Saturday, blocking the ramp for hours. In the central part of the state, snow drifts blocked roads and forced the closure of USA 2 and Interstate 90, in addition to causing multiple auto crashes. And wouldn't you know it, the city's canine residents can't get enough.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency over the storm. Around 50,000 people lost power.

Elsewhere, more than 148,000 customers lost power in MI following days of freezing rain.

Some cities within the region are expected to see as much as three feet of total accumulation through Tuesday, before multiple winter systems pass over the area.

Autumn Sang was at a mobbed grocery store in Tualatin, Oregon, on Friday stocking up for the coming storm for herself and her neighbor, who is disabled and doesn't have a vehicle.

Sang said she had never seen the store so crowded.

"I love it. I'm excited about it", she said of the snow. It's like, 'Use your brain!
