Winter storm watch now a 'Warning'

Pacific Northwest residents who are more accustomed to rain than snow were digging out from a winter storm and bracing for more on Sunday. That means expect your drive Tuesday morning to be a slow one.

Tuesday morning is expected to see mixed precipitation, and Tuesday afternoon, strong westerly winds will pick up and continue overnight.

Most areas in western Washington will pick up at least a few more inches of snow, if not more. In addition, as the temperature rises past the freezing mark, an extended period of sleet and freezing rain could lead to a glaze of ice.

Snow, ice and rain will sweep across the eastern USA starting Tuesday, giving commuters in NY and the Northeast a couple of slippery trips to and from work and potentially tying up air traffic throughout the region. The transition from snow to wintry mix to rain should occur between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. Tuesday.

Environment Canada has upgraded the winter storm watch for Guelph to a winter storm warning. Morning commute Tuesday morning will be a mess. I recommend leaving before 3 p.m or after 6 p.m. if possible.

Thursday: Mostly sunny and a tad cooler.

Even before these subsidies, New York City has been struggling to fund acceptable public transportation and affordable housing. Inc.is reconsidering its plan to build a corporate campus in NY after facing a wave of opposition , according to a report .

Precipitation is expected to be heaviest in the north and northwest suburbs, with snow accumulations between 1 and 4 inches possible in some places.

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. The commutes for Tuesday morning and Tuesday evening will nearly certainly be a messy ride.

There is a winter weather advisory in effect for parts of Northeast Ohio. The weather service office in Eureka reported accumulating snow at sea level.

The winter storm will bring blizzard-like whiteouts.

At the same time the snow is falling, warmer air will be moving northward at high levels of the atmosphere, changing the snow to sleet.

A large storm has blanketed Seattle with snow.
