Snow, ice pellets on the way Tuesday, Environment Canada warns

Snow, ice pellets on the way Tuesday, Environment Canada warns

It looks like students could be in for more snow days this week.

A quick moving system could bring a coating of snow and result in slippery conditions overnight Sunday into Monday morning before a bigger storm arrives on Tuesday.

Seattle Public Schools are closed on Monday, and Metro said buses would run on snow routes.

Several feet of additional snow will bury the Sierra Nevada, particularly above 7,000 feet in elevation, from late on Tuesday through Thursday. Temperatures will fall through the day to the teens by evening and single digits early on Wednesday.

After the mid-week storm pulls out, temperatures will climb past 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 Celsius) in NY and Washington before a second system starts to move east this weekend. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the entire state for a period of snow, followed by a change to wintry mix and rain.

Ex-Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops back with XFL’s Dallas team
For the second installment of the XFL, they are showing just how serious they are in staying around for more than one season. Former Oklahoma Sooners football coach Bob Stoops will be back on the sidelines soon, but not where you might have expected.

The large group of people participated in a public snowball fight on Saturday at Wright Park in Tacoma, Washington.

Residents cleared out grocery store shelves and left work early Friday afternoon, February 8, as the storm arrived.

School closure are also likely this week and stretches of interstates 29, 35, 80, 90 and 94 are expected to be hard and unsafe to travel on during the height of the storm. The Grant County Sheriff's Office warned that snow drifts were blocking many roads.

About 200 flights were cancelled at Seattle-Tacoma and Portland global airports Saturday, roughly matching the number of Friday cancellations.

The weather agency recorded 58.8 cm of snowfall in January at the airport, which is the most on record since 2009, when 62 cm of snow hit Hamilton that month.
