Extreme weather

Seattle got nearly a whole winter's worth of snow in a single day

Seattle got 6.4 inches of snow on Friday, which is just shy of the 6.8 inches the city usually receives in an entire year.

Continued snowfall Saturday brought accumulation to 7.2 inches and counting, while inland areas of Washington State have up to 18 inches of snow on the ground. The unusual amount of snow comes via Winter Storm Maya, which has also closed part of Interstate 90 and left more than 50,000 homes and businesses without power.

More snow, strong winds, and temperatures consistently below freezing are expected to continue throughout the weekend. For those trapped at home by the wintry weather, here's a happy corgi to remind you it's not all bad. Bonnie Kristian
