...Northern WA Cascades...

Rather persistent swrly onshore flow directed into the pac NW will
keep the region saturated and somewhat wet on thurs but only
modest upper height falls behind the surface cold front should
translate to some heavy snow over the nrn WA Cascades. The upper
pattern will be transitioning on Fri into Sat... as upper heights
steadily increase across the region before a very amplified and
potent upper trough/closed low/pac moisture transport arrive.
These building heights ahead of the deepening system will keep any
threat for accumulating heavy snows once again confined to the
northern WA Cascades.

The probability of significant icing is less than 10 percent.
