Winter weather to continue through Friday morning | Weather
As a monstrous ice-and-snow storm brought Western Washington grinding to a standstill, the National Weather Service warned that winter weather would continue through 4 a.m. Friday - several hours later than expected.
In an updated advisory, the Weather Service said the entire region will continue to see a mixed bag of wintry weather Thursday night with freezing rain, sleet and more snow expected across the lowlands of Western Washington.
An additional 1 to 2 inches of new snow or about 0.10 inches of ice accumulation is possible before temperatures warm to above freezing on Friday morning.
The extended forcecast for wintry weather comes after an epic Pacific Northwest ice storm swept in, coating snow-covered Western Washington with freezing rain on Thursday and bringing much of the state to its knees.
