Heavy snow falling in Washington mountains
A storm that moved in Wednesday morning dropped wet snow at lower elevations of Western Washington. Amounts were more than an inch near Copalis Crossing, 2 inches at Poulsbo, an inch at Bremerton, half an inch at Everett and lesser amounts at Seattle, Olympia and Tacoma.
The Western Washington snow is turning to rain, but forecasters say the storm will leave up to 2 feet of new snow in the Cascades by Thursday morning.
Heavy snow also is forecast on the east slopes of the Cascades with widespread snow across the Inland Northwest.
Washington State Patrol troopers answered 119 calls Wednesday morning in Kitsap, Mason, Jefferson, and Clallam counties because of snowy roads and falling trees.
