Forecast of snowy icy conditions Sunday night into Monday morning

Snow will continue into Wednesday before tapering off into flurries on Wednesday evening. The Tuesday evening drive will not be great, but it will be better than Tuesday morning and Wednesday morning in the metro area.

At around midday or early afternoon, the snow will transition over to sleet and then change to freezing rain, ending with rain at the tail end of the storm.

The statement notes that a winter storm with significant snow, freezing rain and strong winds is possible for Tuesday, Feb. 12. In addition, as the temperature rises past the freezing mark, an extended period of sleet and freezing rain could lead to a glaze of ice.

Snowfall amounts will range from an inch to 3 inches (2.5 centimeters to 7.6 centimeters) through Sunday night, on top of the foot that has already accumulated over the weekend in some areas.

Snow-socked residents of the Pacific Northwest are finding themselves digging out yet again after a fresh round of storms, with an additional punch to come early this week. I recommend leaving before 3 p.m or after 6 p.m. if possible.

Bulls reportedly acquire Otto Porter Jr. from Wizards for Parker and Portis
This is not the sort of move the Wizards hoped to have to make, but it's a pragmatic one in the wake of Wall's injury. Parker and Portis are the Bulls third and fourth-leading scorers behind Zach LaVine and Lauri Markkanen .

In parts of Washington state a winter storm watch is in effect through Tuesday afternoon.

The sun was out but the National Weather Service said snow would return late in the afternoon into the evening across the Northwest.

Our next storm system will move in Thursday night into Friday. This means snow totals will be higher and only a small amount of that will be melting.

"Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel hard over some locations", the statement said. Four to nine inches of snow mixed with sleet is possible with wind speeds as high as 35 miles per hour.

That's not quite as much as the storm two weeks ago, which brought 33 cm of snow to Toronto and caused school closures and transit snarls. Follow him on Facebook or Twitter for the latest forecast and realtime weather updates.
