The National Weather Service says light snow has started to make its way into the interior lowlands Sunday afternoon.

"A low pressure system brewing over the Southern Plains States may intensify into a winter storm as it tracks over Southern Ontario Tuesday", the agency said in its statement. There could also be new ice accumulation of less than 0.1 of an inch possible.

8 p.m. Residents of the Pacific Northwest took to neighbourhood hills with skis, sleds or even just laundry baskets Saturday to celebrate an unusual dump of snow in a region more accustomed to winter rain. Expect blowing snow and possibly some drifting, while visibility will be reduced as well, down near a quarter of a mile in any heavier bands that develop.

More central areas of Washington state have been inundated with snow drifts of up to 3-4ft (1m-1.2m) in places, the Associated Press reports.
