SEATTLE — Forecasters say a storm front moving through Washington on Friday will bring gusty winds and rain to Western Washington and up to 2 feet of new snow in the Cascades by late Saturday.

The National Weather Service says there’s a chance of snow showers in the Western Washington lowlands Saturday but no accumulation is expected.

Forecasters predict very gusty winds Saturday in much of Eastern Washington and the cold air means the snow level will fall to valley floors.
