STEVENS PASS — The first winter storm warning of the season has been issued for the Cascades.
As much as 20 inches of snow could fall above 4,000 feet, by Tuesday morning, the National Weather Service says.
Stevens Pass could get 5 inches. Web cams at the ski resort show that it is snowing this morning.
“The heavier parts of the storm are heading toward Stevens Pass this morning,” said Robin Fox, a meteorologist for the Weather Service office in Spokane.
Scattered rain or a slushy rain-snow mix are forecasted in lower elevations around the region through Wednesday.
