Rain here; mountains getting snow

By early afternoon Friday, a wet and blustery storm was making its way across Western Washington, as promised.

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport was recording wind gusts approaching 30 mph at 1 p.m., while Port Angeles was recording gusts of 35 mph.

Mixed rain-and-snow were falling in the Stevens and Snoqualmie Pass areas, expected to switch to just snow within hours, and building up to 6 to 11 inches over the next couple of days.

In  the Seattle area, both the wind and the rain are expected to diminish by 4 p.m., but the weekend is still looking soggy. Seattle’s forecast calls for a 100 percent chance of rain on Saturday, dropping to 50 percent on Sunday.
