High winds, mountain snow across Washington
Meteorologist Ted Buehner in Seattle says wind gusts early Monday hit 60 mph on the coast and 55 mph in the south Puget Sound area.
Winds of 35 mph and heavy snow are creating blizzard-like conditions in the Cascades. Accumulations from the storm that started Sunday are likely to total 2 to 3 feet by Tuesday morning.
Colder air is dropping the snow level under 1,000 feet Monday night and could leave snow on the higher hills in the Puget Sound area.
Snow is already on the ground in parts of Eastern Washington, including Spokane, where another inch or two is forecast Monday.
