Weather Alert: Winter Storm Maya
Winter Storm Maya Blankets Seattle with Snow; Will Spread Snow and Ice to Northern Great Lakes, Northeast
Winter Strom Maya has already dumped snow in the Seattle metro, is becoming a crippling snowstorm in parts of the far northern Rockies, and will eventually spread snow and some ice to parts of the northern tier of states and interior Northeast.
Rain changed to snow in the Seattle-Tacoma-Olympia, Washington corridor Sunday afternoon and continued into Monday. SeaTac airport had picked up 5 inches of snow as of 5 a.m. PST Monday morning, but parts of the metro, especially in the hills, had measured 6 to 12 inches. The storm had reportedly knocked out power to more than 66,000 Puget Sound Energy customers as of early Monday, according to KIRO 7 in Seattle. Snow continues in western Washington, as well as the Olympics, Cascades and coastal ranges of Washington and Oregon. Heavy snow continues to pound the Rockies from the chimney of Idaho and northwest Montana to Idaho, western Wyoming and Colorado, and California’s Sierra.
Rain and snow will persist from the West Coast to the Great Basin, northern and central Rockies.
Accumulating snow will persist in the lowlands of western Washington, including Seattle-Tacoma.
Heavy snow will continue to impact California’s Sierra Nevada, the Cascades, and most of the Rockies, particularly the chimney of Idaho and northwest Montana.
Some snow will develop in the northern Plains late in the day.
Snow expands Monday night from the northern Plains to the northern Great Lakes, and possibly into the interior Northeast by early Tuesday morning.
Sleet or freezing rain is possible on the southern periphery of the snow Monday night, which may lead to some ice accumulations from the Upper Midwest to the interior Northeast.
