Seattle nearly reached its yearly amount of snowfall in one day

More than 15 million people across the Western United States were under winter storm alerts Saturday morning, according to CNN meteorologist Haley Brink.

About 200 flights were canceled at Seattle-Tacoma and Portland worldwide airports Saturday, roughly matching the number of Friday cancellations.

In Seattle, officials urged people to stay off the roads as traffic slowed to a standstill in some places because of the snow.

Earlier this week, another storm shut down Seattle and left some neighborhoods with about half a foot of snow.

After two days of cold, mostly sunny weather with highs near 33 degrees, Tuesday is expected to bring a winter storm, according to the National Weather Service. Residents of Hawaii were bracing for coastal flooding amid extreme surf predictions.

The Sunday forecast includes a chance of rain, freezing rain and snow in the pre-dawn hours, followed by rain through the rest of Sunday.

More than a foot of snow (30.5 cm) was recorded in some areas, including on the Olympic Peninsula.

Elsewhere, more than 148,000 customers were without electricity in MI following days of freezing rain. The Consumers Energy utility said power would be restored by late Sunday.

The Pacific Northwest snowstorm also left almost 50,000 people in eastern Washington without electricity. A 59-year-old man died Thursday from exposure to frigid temperatures at a Seattle light rail station.

The storm hit with snowfall from Sunday and Monday still on the ground, thanks to below-freezing temperatures that have gripped the area.

Valentine's Day on Thursday, Feb. 14 will be mostly sunny with a high around 40. She grew up in southern OR, where snow is more common, and wasn't fazed by the forecast. "If you don't have to go out, don't go out'".
