Snow to arrive late Sunday in DC, could impact Monday morning commute

Residents in Portland and Seattle who are more accustomed to rain than snow waited in long lines to buy shovels and de-icer. This should be light fluffy snow so there will be some "fluff factor" to give the advisory area 2 to 4 inches of accumulation, with a pocket of 5 or even a 6 possible depending on how fluffy it gets.

Seattle Weather Blog reports that Seattle woke up Saturday to its biggest February storm since 1962.

The second snowstorm is expected to start Monday and bring more snow than the one on Sunday.

Another storm system is arriving now into Iowa and Minnesota. "Between them, there's not much time to spare".

With temperatures already in the teens or single digits, meteorologists predict low temperature records could be broken on Sunday.

According to the forecast for Kansas City, there is a 100 percent chance of snow after 3 a.m. Sunday with temperatures in the mid 20s.
