A storm system moving into the Pacific Northwest and Montana could leave up to 4 feet of snow in the Cascades by the middle of this week. This means the second round of heavy snowfall this season for mountains like Crystal, Stevens Pass, and Mt. Baker. A few weeks ago, the Cascades received historic amounts of early season snow.
