Forecasters say a cold front that moved into the Northwest overnight will bring more winds, rain and mountain snow today to Western Washington and a mix of rain and snow in Eastern Washington.
One overnight gust of 52 mph was recorded at the Whidbey Island Naval Air Station and the National Weather Service says other gusts in Western Washington have been in the 30 to 40 mph range.
Rain in the lowlands is accompanied by snow in the Cascades where another 4 to 9 inches are expected Monday above 2,000 feet.
More snow also is forecast for the mountains of Eastern Washington with some accumulations in northern valleys. Forecasters expect 1 to 3 inches Monday in the Spokane-area.
Forecasters expect dryer weather on tomorrow.
