Clouds will be moving into our area Sunday evening eventually giving way to a winter snow/rain mix around midnight.

In Seattle, snowfall from Sunday and Monday lingered into the week as below-freezing temperatures gripped the area.

Sunday night will feature clear skies with temperatures in the teens.

It was 9 degrees in Arlington, Washington early Sunday.

The National Weather Service said gusts hit 40 miles per hour (64 kph) in some areas, and authorities said residents on the islands' north shores should be prepared for coastal flooding.

The Pacific Northwest snowstorm also left almost 50,000 people in eastern Washington without electricity.

Parts of Seattle were in a complete whiteout on Friday, with one resident captured on camera taking his own selfie against the solid wall of white.

Many businesses and schools closed early, as well, so workers could get home. The snow was slowly tapering off during the evening hours, but roads remained slippery across the region.

Recent cold weather and snow has been affecting other states too.

"Strong and gusty easterly winds may cause low visibility in blowing snow before the snow changes over to freezing precipitation", says the release.

Snow is expected to fall and create slippery conditions from Bismarck, North Dakota to Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Minneapolis; Des Moines and Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Madison, Milwaukee and Green Bay, Wisconsin; and Traverse City and Marquette, Michigan.

Interstate 405 was covered with snow and ice, but vehicles still passed through on Saturday.
