Winter storm warning Tuesday

A wintry mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain will develop this evening, eventually changing over to all rain into south-central MI by later Tuesday morning.

Pacific Northwest residents, more accustomed to rain than snow, found themselves digging out yet again as a fresh round of storms moved over the area, with an additional punch to come early this week. The storm could bring between 6 to 9 inches of snow, as well as a light glaze of ice accumulation.

"However, warmer air will turn snow to sleet and rain from south to north Monday night through Tuesday evening, making for a messy mixture of precipitation and a tricky morning and evening commute for many Tuesday".

A winter storm warning has been issued for a large portion of Cayuga County. Snow will continue through the morning, and gradually change over to sleet and then to rain by the afternoon.

Snow will begin Tuesday morning with strong easterly wind gusts of up to 70 km/h which could create blowing snow and reduced visibility.

Ed Vallee, owner and meteorologist at Empire Weather LLC said: "A fast-moving storm will impact the Northeast Monday night through Tuesday night with a plethora of precipitation types".

Extremely unsafe conditions for outdoor activities and travel will exist area-wide.

Schools and universities closed across Washington state and the Legislature cancelled all hearings Monday as the Northwest dealt with snow and ice and prepared for more as a series of winter storms socked the region.
