Twin winter storms slam Pacific Northwest

Snow was pelting Seattle and accumulating on roads early Wednesday as the city was poised to see what could be one of its largest-ever snowfalls in more than 70 years.

The Seattle-Tacoma metropolitan area may see between 4 and 8 inches of snow as the second of twin storms moves across the Pacific Northwest, according to the National Weather Service.

The southwest interior of Washington state, including the capital, Olympia, could see 5 to 10 inches of snow, the weather service said.
