  • Two rounds of wintry precipitation possible Saturday night through Monday morning

In the Pacific Northwest, an unusual snow dump forced the cancellation of more than 200 flights in Seattle and Portland but also had residents celebrating with skis and sleds after more than a foot of snow fell in some areas in a region more accustomed to rain.

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.

The Seattle Times reports storms have delivered more snow to Seattle in the first days of February than it usually gets in a year.

There's also a high wind warning for Whatcom, Skagit and the San Juans until 4 a.m. Sunday, with gusts in the 40-60 miles per hour range, making it feel like the single digits with the wind chill. Forecasters say the track of the system could still shift and there is a chance some areas could see higher accumulations and some freezing drizzle. The National Weather Service is predicting southern Minnesota will be visited by another snow storm on Sunday and that could be followed by a major storm early next week.

"This is a ideal morning to bundle up and play in the snow, but stay off the roads if possible", Gov. Jay Inslee wrote on Twitter. 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. There's more snow expected later in the week as well.

In Yosemite National Park, as many as 50 housing structures near Half Dome Village were damaged by trees toppled during a snowstorm earlier this week, displacing more than 160 employees who provide food, lodging and other services for visitors.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency over the storm.

Elsewhere, more than 148,000 customers were without electricity in MI following days of freezing rain. "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".
