Winter storm warning issued for western Washington

Higher elevation areas such as the Teton Valley, the Snake River Highlands, or near Island Park might see between 6 and 12 inches of snow. Heavy snow will continue in the Sierra crest in western Nevada.

Earlier this week, Seattle was hit by the first snowstorm, with 2.7 inches blanketing the region - up from the 0.7 inches on average for February.

Snow and cold are also forecast for interior OR and Washington as well as for much of northern California, the National Weather Service said. The San Juans and the Northern Interior could see one to four inches of snow with wind gusts up to 50 miles per hour. "Weather forecasters predict this may be a storm unlike one we've seen in many years". After that, forecasters will be focused on a "quick, nearly clipper like system" that will likely bring more snow.

"Doesn't matter where you're going, expect it to take a very. long. time", the Washington Department of Transportation said on Twitter.
