Wednesday morning's drive will be changing back from rain to freezing rain and snow, but less of a problem than Tuesday morning.

Over Sunday night, snow was expected to be confined to the mountains, with a "VERY BRIEF" break on Monday morning before another winter system began dropping snow in the Seattle area.

In central Washington, blowing snow and drifts 3 to 4 feet deep forced the closure of US 2 and Interstate 90.

The sun came out Sunday afternoon, but snow returned in the evening across the Northwest.

TUESDAY: WEATHER WATCH. Snow developing by late morning, changing to a mix/rain during the late afternoon.

Precipitation is expected to start in Western Massachusetts around noon on Tuesday, beginning in Boston around 3 p.m.

Disney drops teaser video for live-action "Aladdin" movie showing Genie
The teaser unveiled the first footage of Will's Smith's Genie - and fans don't really know how to feel about it. And I say this as someone who's been an ardent defender of Ritchie's last couple of fun-filled blockbusters.

Friday: Cloudy with scattered showers likely in the afternoon. That's plenty of time for an additional of 3 to 6 inches of snow to accumulate. Some freezing drizzle is also possible in between the rounds of snow.

No problems today with clouds and high temperatures near 30. "Another 1-2" will fall during the evening before tapering off before midnight. Blue=Winter Storm Watch, Purple=Winter Weather Advisory. As it now looks, the heaviest snow may actually occur overnight and into early Tuesday morning.

Conditions are expected to be mild, however, with high temperatures near 45 Wednesday, 42 Thursday, 49 Friday, and 51 Saturday, forecasters said.

As a snowstorm paralyzes much of the Pacific Northwest, officials are warning about severe surf and winds in Hawaii as a winter storm hits that state.

Elsewhere, more than 148,000 customers lost power in MI following days of freezing rain.
