    A new storm is reaching the Pacific Northwest today. Although the storm will remain rather weak and only a little rain will dampen western Washington, the accompanying low clouds could lead to flight delays in Seattle.

    Meanwhile, motorists could run into a bit of snow through the heavily traveled mountain passes such as Snoqualmie Pass along I-90.

    Portland will remain dry today but low clouds will hover over the city, causing potential problems for airline passengers.
