Rochester Area Could See Three Rounds of Snow Starting Sunday

Residents more accustomed to rain than snow were digging out from a winter storm while bracing for more. The Grant County Sheriff's Office warned that snow drifts were blocking many roads.

Interstate 405 was covered with snow and ice, but vehicles still passed through on Saturday.

Other parts of the country were also wrestling with hard weather.

It was 9 degrees Fahrenheit in Arlington, Washington early on Sunday.

More than 120 people were rescued on Thursday from a Sierra Nevada, California, resort after being trapped by snow for five days. Seattle nearly reached its yearly amount of snowfall in a day.

Another winter storm was on the way to the region.

An unusually powerful winter storm dropped over six inches on the Pacific Northwest city February 9 - a "new daily record" according to the National Weather Service, which also happens to report that more snow is on the way. As many as 50 housing structures were damaged near Yosemite National Park by toppled trees during a snowstorm.

Details still need to be ironed out as track position and strength still varies, but the general consensus is we will see snow develop Monday night and carry into much of Tuesday before it exits.

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.

Residents in Seattle cleared out grocery store shelves and left work early on Friday afternoon as the storm arrived.

"I love it. I'm excited about it", she said of the snow. She wasn't fazed by the forecast of more snow on its way.

"There may be several hours of wintry precipitation and wintry travel conditions from I-80 to Chicago and Detroit", AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said. "I think that Portlanders, majority are city people and they come from a lot of different places, so they're not so used to it".
