Mixed bag of rain, snow, freezing rain across state
A winter storm moving through the Pacific Northwest is bringing a mix of heavy rain, mountain snow, wind, and freezing rain to Washington state.
The National Weather Service in Seattle says 1 to 2 feet of snow are expected in the North Cascades.
Meteorologist Logan Johnson said Friday morning that warmer temperatures are moving into the Central Cascades and bringing a mixture of snow, rain and freezing rain at the mountain passes.
Authorities are warning of icy road conditions as freezing rain falls in many parts of the state, including Whatcom County and eastern Washington.
The weather service says parts of northwest Oregon and southwest Washington may get up to several inches of rain. A flood watch is in effect in that region until late Friday.
Johnson says breezy conditions are also expected to pick up throughout the day in Western Washington.
