Western Washington wakes up to more snow Saturday

So it snowed in Seattle, and the dogs are loving it

So it snowed in Seattle, and the dogs are loving it

SEATTLE-Residents of the Pacific Northwest took to neighborhood hills with skis, sleds or even just laundry baskets February 9 to celebrate an unusual dump of snow in a region more accustomed to winter rain.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for the northern part of Mid-Michigan for Monday evening through Wednesday morning.

The snow will come in three waves beginning Sunday evening, followed by systems coming to the region Monday night and Thursday night.

The storm will arrive overnight Monday into Tuesday with flurries before snow becomes steadier sometime around 8 a.m. Snow will change to freezing rain at times after noontime before changing back to snow and then to sleet and rain as the high temperature climbs just above the freezing mark excepts areas farthest north.

It was 9 degrees in Arlington, Washington early Sunday.

The National Weather Service said gusts hit 40 miles per hour (64 kph) in some areas, and authorities said residents on the islands' north shores should be prepared for coastal flooding. Residents of Hawaii were bracing for coastal flooding amid extreme surf predictions. Heavy snow did do some damage in Yosemite National Park, where they got up to two feet in some areas. Hawaii News Now reported that the surf was forecast to top out at 60 feet (18 metres) on Sunday.

Elsewhere, more than 148,000 customers were without electricity in MI following days of freezing rain. Around 50,000 people lost power. A 59-year-old man died Thursday from exposure to frigid temperatures at a Seattle light rail station.

Autumn Sang was at a mobbed grocery store in Tualatin, Oregon, on Friday stocking up for the coming storm for herself and her neighbor, who is disabled and doesn't have a vehicle. Forecasters say the track of the system could still shift and there is a chance some areas could see higher accumulations and some freezing drizzle.

"I love it. I'm excited about it", she said of the snow.
