Nearly 2 feet of snow fell in the mountains outside the city of Seattle, which has received 10.6 inches of snow so far in February, the most snow for the month in 70 years.

After receiving fresh snow, the city is likely going to see its coldest morning temperature since November 2010.

The area is digging out from the snow, right as two more storms are lined up to hit the area in the next two days. New winter storm watches have been posted for the metro area.

Additionally, winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories are posted for much of the rest of the West, while the region deals with mountain snow and gusty winds.

Locally, 5 to 8 inches of snow will fall through Tuesday night in Seattle. With that type of additional snowfall, Seattle will be making a run at its snowiest February on record.

Storms move in Midwest, Northeast

One of the storms that hit the West Coast is reorganizing in the central U.S. Sunday morning, and already bringing some light snow to the Central Plains. This storm will quickly race off to the east and bring snow from Minnesota to Pennsylvania later Sunday.
