It's beginning to look a lot like winter in Washington with snow in the mountains and flooding rivers. The National Weather Service expects the first significant snowfall of the season in the Cascades. A winter storm warning is in effect through 5 p.m. today.
Forecasters expected the freezing level to drop to 3,000 feet Monday night, leaving snow on Stevens, White, Washington and Snoqualmie passes with accumulations of 6 to 12 inches and up to 18 inches in places.
The cold front is bringing rain showers to the Western Washington lowlands. Forecasters have issued a warning for several King County rivers, predicting minor flooding on the Tolt River at Carnation and minor flooding on the Snoqualmie near Snoqualmie Falls.
