While it will pale in comparison to last week's storm, more rain and low-elevation snow could impact travel across the Pacific Northwest over the next few days.
Intermittent snow was falling at some lower elevations between Portland and Seattle this morning. However, in the cities themselves, milder air that spread in Sunday has allowed precipitation to fall as plain rain.
For the lower elevations where is has been cold enough for snow, a changeover to rain is expected today as snow levels rise.
Later tonight and early Tuesday, snow levels will fall once again to the lowlands, allowing snowflakes to mix with rain.
Any accumulation will be light and likely confined to grassy surfaces, though a few slick spots could be found early along back roads.
In the foothills, and especially the Cascades, heavy snow will persist through the next several days, with blizzard conditions making recreational activities next to impossible. Snow will be measured in feet and some passes will be snow-clogged for the next few days.
By and large, this will be a rain event for the Emerald and Rose Cities. The only weather-related issue facing travelers on I-5 should be wet roads, even when snow mixes in.
Rainfall will total an inch or two by late on Tuesday, before another moisture-packed storm approaches for Wednesday.
