Two to six more inches of snow were in the forecast as a winter storm pounded the state. Looks like most areas can expect to stay dry until late this afternoon or early this evening.

The huge Seattle metro region could get six to eight inches in its second snowstorm of the week, forecasters say.

Andy Bollenbacher, meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said this storm will be "as cold, if not colder", than the storm that passed through the area on Monday and Tuesday, which rained down hail and snow across the San Joaquin Valley, foothills and High Sierra.

"Everyone in our state needs to focus on preparing for the snow and staying safe", Inslee said in a news release. There will be a slight chance for a mix of rain and snow hitting the valley floor in Redding on Sunday. up to around 4 feet of snow could fall in the mountains this weekend, but less than an inch of rain is projected for most of the valley.

The Seattle Police Department tweeted that additional resources have been dedicated to getting the homeless community to warm shelters.

With the declaration of a state of emergency, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is limiting the number of hours commercial vehicle drivers can be on the road. This snow is likely to stick around with temperatures dipping as low as 10 in Olympia over the weekend, and highs just reaching the freezing point.

If that wasn't enough, there's a possibility of more snow for Seattle Sunday into Monday. Winds will become gusty out of the South on Saturday.

Earlier this week, another storm shut down Seattle and left some neighborhoods with about half a foot of snow.
