SEATTLE — Seattle, a city more accustomed to rain than snow, is bracing for up to 10 inches of snow to fall.
The city's mayor on Tuesday urged residents to stay off roads if possible and school officials are preparing for the worst.
Street crews throughout the region have been busy salting and sanding streets.
Snow has been falling steadily in various parts of western Washington since the weekend. But meteorologists with the National Weather Service in Seattle say the biggest snowfall is expected Wednesday.
If the past is any hint, even several inches of snow has the potential to paralyze the city of Seattle.
The city owns relatively few snowplows and Seattle drivers are mostly inexperienced with driving in snow or ice.
