No rest for the tired: Next winter storm arrives tonight

Storms have delivered more snow to Seattle in the first days of February than it usually gets in a year, The Seattle Times reported.

In typical "Winter of 2019" fashion, there will be a change to wintry mix and rain as warmer air moves in from the south. As it now looks, the heaviest snow may actually occur overnight and into early Tuesday morning. Occasional on and off snow continues through the day on Tuesday.

Most of Metro Detroit will have more freezing rain taking hold and some areas could get a quarter of an inch of ice or more early tomorrow.

The wet weather will come and go all day with temps climbing to near 40 degrees, many of us will see a switch to rain which will melt the ice quickly. Overnight, about 2 inches of snow fell and accumulated in South Jersey.

Clouds will be moving into our area Sunday evening eventually giving way to a winter snow/rain mix around midnight. I think my forecast of 3 to 6 inches of snow accumulation and up to a quarter-inch of ice is a safe bet.

Kylie and Travis naturally took the opportunity to dance with their daughter during the catchy performance. Showing support for her granddaughter, Caitlyn Jenner attended the festivities alongside Sophia Hutchins.

The mixed precipitation could make for hard driving conditions on Wednesday, especially as high winds cause visibility issues in blowing snow.

Driving conditions could be hard for your Monday morning commute as areas north of Baltimore could see several inches of snow.

Jack Sillin, of the weather.us blog, outlined exactly how much snow Seattle may expect to see in the next week. While the storm still remains more than 24 hours out, forecasters predict the North Shore and towns west of 495 have the best chance of exceeding 4 inches of snow by the time things are all said and done with this storm. Gusty winds leading to blowing/drifting snow and some light freezing drizzle also expected.

Travel delays and bus cancellations are expected.
