This weather system may have a significant impact on travel.
WEDNESDAY: Rain/mix ends early morning, then clearing, milder.
Pacific Northwest residents, more accustomed to rain than snow, found themselves digging out yet again as a fresh round of storms moved over the area, with an additional punch to come early this week.
Snow is expected to begin early Tuesday morning.
About 3 p.m. Tuesday, another round of snowfall is expected before conditions clear up on Wednesday, when sunny skies and temperatures in the low-30s are in the forecast, the weather service said.
If the snow doesn't turn into ice pellets and freezing rain, however, total snowfall amounts could be higher.
Strong and gusty easterly winds may cause low visibility in blowing snow before the snow changes over to freezing precipitation.
The city will see a small taste of precipitation tonight, with two centimetres of snow expected overnight.
The North Shore and areas west of Interstate 495, however, are primed to receive more.
Our very active, stormy pattern continues this next work week as another winter storm promises to dump several more inches of snow on the area.
How much is possible in an extreme case?
Freezing rain warnings may be issued as the system draws closer.
