Look for the first storm on Wednesday into Thursday morning.
Forecast models expect about 12-18 inches of new snow, with potentially even higher amounts up to 2 feet near Mount Baker. A Winter Storm Watch has been issued above 2,500 feet from late Tuesday night into Thursday morning.
Snow levels are expected to remain below all the passes, meaning heavy snow is likely along both Snoqualmie and Stevens Passes. Twelve to eighteen inches (30 to 45 cm) of new snow is forecast by Thursday morning with possible higher amounts at Mt. Baker & Paradise. #wawx
An even stronger stormy pattern is expected later Friday through the weekend as two more storms come in essentially back-to-back. For areas around Stevens Pass and higher, this has potential for a major snow event with 2-3 feet (60 to 90 cm) of new snow possible in the period. Travel along US-2 could be extremely difficult.
