SEATTLE (AP) — Forecasters say frontal systems moving through Washington Wednesday and Thursday will bring heavy snow to the Cascades.

The National Weather Service has a winter storm warning in effect for the mountain passes. Forecasters expect accumulations by Thursday evening of 1 to 2 feet at Snoqualmie and Stevens passes.

Accumulations of 2 to 3 feet are expected above 4,500 feet in the Cascades.

Forecasters also expect snow Wednesday along the Hood Canal, the east slopes of the Cascades and the mountains of Eastern Washington.

The Weather Service says the pattern of cool showery weather is likely to continue in Washington for the rest of winter, at least. Spring starts on Tuesday — on the calendar, anyway.
