Snow spreads across Washington
Some parts of Western Washington are seeing their first snowflakes of the season.
The National Weather Service says the light Tuesday morning accumulations will be short-lived but more showers are possible Wednesday with a chance of high winds in places.
Forecasters expect heavy snow in the mountains in the next couple of days. Accumulations of 1 to 3 feet are likely in the Cascades by Thursday morning, making driving through the passes difficult.
In Eastern Washington, the National Weather Service says scattered snow showers Tuesday will be followed by heavy snow Wednesday and Thursday. Accumulations of 4 to 8 inches are expected north of Highway 2. In the Spokane area, 3 to 5 inches are possible by Wednesday night with another 1 to 3 inches possible Thursday.
