Another storm for Thanksgiving in Washington
Tuesday, November 22, 2011
SEATTLE (AP) -- After a brief break, another storm is forecast on Thanksgiving in Washington. This time, the National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for heavy snow expected Thursday through Friday morning in the north and central Cascade Mountains.
Rain is forecast across much of the rest of the state.
On Wednesday, rain tapered off after a storm that dropped 2-to-4 inches of rain in many parts of Western Washington. Flood warnings continued for several Western Washington rivers, including the Skokomish, Stillaguamish, Chehalis and Newaukum but warnings ended on several other rivers.
After repeated closures Tuesday for avalanche control and accidents, Snoqualmie Pass reported light snow falling Wednesday night with bare and wet pavement. The Washington Transportation Department said Stevens Pass had snow and slush on the road while White Pass was bare and wet. Snow was falling on both of those Cascade passes.
