Kansas City area issued winter weather advisory for Sunday snow, freezing drizzle

The forecasting models are not in agreement on the track of the low-pressure center, but the National Weather Service says it's likely to produce significant snow somewhere across the Upper Midwest late Monday and into Tuesday.

About 50,000 residents are said to have lost power across the state, USA media report. Unsafe travel conditions will exist with slick and eventually snow-covered roads/highways. It calls for a wintry mix of precipitation, including up to 1 inch of snow early Sunday.

"This is a ideal morning to bundle up and play in the snow, but stay off the roads if possible", Gov. Jay Inslee wrote on Twitter.

Washington's Governor, Jay Inslee, declared an emergency across the state on Friday.

The large group of people participated in a public snowball fight on Saturday at Wright Park in Tacoma, Washington. A 59-year-old man died Thursday from exposure to frigid temperatures at a Seattle light rail station.

"Disruptions to logistical operations are expected due to heavy snowfall causing hazardous travel conditions", Clark said.




Residents more accustomed to rain than snow were digging out from a winter storm while bracing for more.

Autumn Sang was at a mobbed grocery store in Tualatin, Oregon, on February 8 stocking up for the coming storm for herself and her neighbor, who is disabled and doesn't have a auto.

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

Sang said she had never seen the store so crowded. She wasn't fazed by the forecast of more snow on its way. "I think that Portlanders, majority are city people and they come from a lot of different places, so they're not so used to it". As the low pressure pulls away to the east Tuesday, northwest winds will strengthen gusting over 35 miles per hour and snow will gradually end from west to east later Tuesday/Tuesday evening.

But more snow was possible for the region by midweek, the report said.
