Snowstorm buries Northwest, with more on the way

Snowstorm buries Northwest, with more on the way

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.

Some areas around Seattle recieved more than 10 inches of snow Saturday, the most in 70 years, the National Weather Service said, and more is on the way two more storm systems close in on the area. Snowfall amounts will range from an inch to 3 inches (2.5 centimeters to 7.6 centimeters) through Sunday night.

The low temperature in the Seattle area tonight will dip into the upper 20s, with a windchill dropping into the teens. 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. (AP Photo/Ted S.

The weather service says that was colder than the Arctic coast or North Slope of Alaska.

More central areas of Washington state have been inundated with snow drifts of up to 3-4ft (1m-1.2m) in places, the Associated Press reports.

In California, more than 120 visitors and staff members were rescued Thursday in a Sierra Nevada resort after being trapped by up to seven feet of snow. There's more snow expected later in the week as well. The National Weather Service office in Eureka reported accumulating snow at sea level.

Another winter storm was on the way to the region.

Temperatures will hover just about freezing for a few more hours. "I think that Portlanders, majority are city people and they come from a lot of different places, so they're not so used to it".
