Storm brings first snow to Washington passes

The National Weather Service forecasts additional snow Tuesday in Washington's mountains as a strong fall storm that hit over the weekend moves through.

A winter storm warning remains in effect in the Cascades until 6 p.m. Forecasters expect 12 to 16 inches of new snow by Wednesday at higher elevations.

Snow fell throughout the day Monday at 4,000-foot Stevens Pass and started Monday evening at 3,000-foot Snoqualmie Pass.

Forecasters say the storm that brought high winds and heavy rains will ease for a short break on Wednesday. Then, more rains are forecast through the weekend across Washington, with more mountain snow.
