Rain returns to the lowlands, heavy snow makes travel tough over mountain passes
As we get ready to say goodbye to 2017 we'll close the year out with a couple of soggy systems for the lowlands of Western Washington and snow for the mountains. We're keeping an eye Thursday on western Whatcom County for wintry conditions. As the system moves through today we'll see rain for almost all of the region, but places like Bellingham, Ferndale, Blaine, Birch Bay, Lynden and Sumas are under a WINTER STORM WARNING through 1:00 p.m.
