Winter storm bringing snow to the Cascade Range
By Debra Smith
Better throw your snow chains in the trunk if
youre heading over the pass.
The National Weather Service in Seattle has
issued a winter storm warning for the mountains
through 5 p.m. Tuesday. The forecast calls for
up to a foot of snow through Tuesday morning,
with heavier amounts possible between Stevens
and Snoqualmie Pass.
Snow began falling this morning at Stevens Pass,
said Dennis D'Amico, a weather service meteorologist
in Seattle. A cool system could bring even more
snow to the mountains later this week, he said.
Two more storms are heading toward the mountains.
Its common for snow to start falling in the
mountains in October, DAmico said.
The weather service is predicting a warmer, drier
winter than last year, he said.
