Forecasters say a storm will blow into the state Saturday with strong winds on the coast and Puget Sound region and snow in the mountains down to the highway passes.
The National Weather Service says a passing cold front could bring 50 mph wind gusts on the north coast, Strait of Juan de Fuca and northwest interior while parts of the southwest interior and Puget Sound area could be hit by wind gusts in the 40s.
Forecasters say Snoqualmie and Stevens passes could have 6 inches of snow accumulating by mid-day Sunday. A foot of new snow is possible on Mount Rainier.
Eastern Washington also will have mountain snow and winds Saturday, with gusts up to 40 mph possible over the Columbia Basin.
Also, starting today, studded tires are legal on Washington roadways.
They’ll have to come off cars at the end of March, when the threat of snow-and-ice covered highways has passed.

Crushed cars fall into water: Well, at least they weren’t new. A number of crushed cars from Canada bound for a steel recycling outfit in Tacoma fell into the water when the barge they were on started to list Sunday. There were no fluids in the cars, thank goodness.
Dang windy out there: We warned you that the wind would be a-blowin’ this morning, and she sure is. At 6 a.m., the wind was blowing steady at 16 mph with gusts to 25 mph, although TV is reporting gusts to 50 mph. The wind should settle down to just 8 mph later today, says the National Weather Service.
Horse meat in Ikea meatballs: Have no fear. Ikea says that the Swedish meatballs sold in their stores in the U.S. do not have horse meat in them. That’s apparently not true for 13 countries in Europe … Would you eat food that has horse meat in it? Vote in our poll.
Native American murals: The murals at Wilson-Pacific school in Seattle could be gone because the school is scheduled for demolition. The school district thought it had a deal with the artist to take digital photos of the large murals and later reproduce them, but the artist now says the plan is a no-go.
