.A Pacific weather system will push a warm front over the Pacific

Northwest tonight through Thursday, which will spread

precipitation over the cold air trapped at the surface. This will

cause snow and mixed precipitation areas across the advised

zones. The precipitation will likely start out as snow and change

to a mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain.
