    Seattle and Portland are going to get this storm first and some are already starting to call it historic. The storms that were slamming Alaska are now moving south.

    Ingredients on Deck for Historic Seattle Snowstorm

    By Andy Mussoline, Meteorologist

    An arctic cold front slicing south across the Northwest will usher in the latest round of arctic chill into the country. The cold air will support snow in the region over the next several days before a major storm could wallop the region by the middle of next week.
    Arctic air will slice into the Northwest into early next week. The cold air pouring south will set the stage for a potentially historic snowstorm in the Seattle area.

    Initially, intermittent snow will fall across Washington and Oregon and areas farther east across the Interior West through Tuesday.

    Snow can accumulate a couple of inches from Seattle, Wash., to Portland, Ore., through Monday.

    Despite the occasional snow early this week, our attention will be focused on the region for some wild weather next week.

    A powerhouse storm will slam into the Northwest later Tuesday night into Wednesday, sending a surge of heavy rain and snow into the Pacific Northwest.

    We are next!
