Another blast of winter weather is expected to hit the Capital with 25 to 35 cm of snow in the forecast.

Elsewhere, more than 148,000 customers were without electricity in MI following days of freezing rain.

Residents of the Northwest are dealing with a heavy snowfall, and meteorologists say more is likely on the way.

Most of northern Mid-Michigan could receive about one-tenth of an inch of freezing rain from Monday night through Wednesday morning.

There can be a rapid freeze-up in the lower Ohio Valley later Tuesday as temperatures plunge behind the rain, causing any lingering wet areas to turn to ice.

About 200 flights were canceled at Seattle-Tacoma and Portland worldwide airports on Saturday, roughly matching the number of Friday cancellations. A 59-year-old man died February 7 from exposure at a Seattle light rail station. Bridges in the city were closed Friday as officials planned to determine when they could be reopened, MLive.com reported. The city was focused on people who are willing to come inside, Will Lemke, spokesman for the Seattle Human Services Department, told the Seattle Times.

After two days of cold, mostly sunny weather with highs near 33 degrees, Tuesday is expected to bring a winter storm, according to the National Weather Service.

Snowfall amounts will range from an inch to 3 inches (2.5 centimeters to 7.6 centimeters) through Sunday night, on top of the foot that has already accumulated over the weekend in some areas.

In Tualatin, Ore., resident Autumn Sang was mobbed during a visit to a grocery store to stock up on supplies.

"I love it. I'm excited about it", she said of the snow. She grew up in southern OR, where snow is more common, and wasn't fazed by the forecast. "I think that Portlanders, majority are city people and they come from a lot of different places, so they're not so used to it".

But more snow was possible for the region by midweek, the report said. "If you don't have to go out, don't go out'".
