SEATTLE - The Puget Sound area could be in for its heaviest snowfall in decades, as a daylong snowstorm Wednesday is forecast to drop 6 to 14 inches in the Seattle area, on top of several inches that fell over the weekend and into Tuesday.

"It will be snowing everywhere on Wednesday. Not showers, but heavy, widespread snowfall all day," said Chris Burke of the National Weather Service.

If Wednesday's snowfall hits at the high end of the forecast range, it would be the biggest single-day snowfall in Seattle since 14.9 inches fell on Jan. 27, 1969, Burke said. The area also had more than 14 inches of snow in November 1985, but it fell over two successive storms.

Winter Storm Warnings will soon be in effect for Seattle and Portland. Portland may also see some icing, in additional to significant snow accumulation. [/LEFT]

We got some snow over the weekend here in Vancouver but it looks like this large storm that's affecting Seattle will just graze us so we won't see any major accumulation from it. It's just going to be really cold with a low of -7C tomorrow expected

We're at about 6" so far this storm, now another 15" plus 35 mph coming tonight. Schools are already announcing they will be closed tomorrow. I have the company laptop and will work from home, in front of the fireplace until this is over.
