SEATTLE (AP) — The Latest on winter weather in the Pacific Northwest (all times local):

4 p.m.

Some parts of the Pacific Northwest already buried by a winter storm are starting to see another round of snowfall.

The National Weather Service says light snow has started to make its way into the interior lowlands Sunday afternoon. Snow showers are expected to be heavy at times and will continue into the evening.

Residents more accustomed to rain than snow were digging out from a winter storm while bracing for more.

Snowfall amounts will range from an inch to 3 inches (2.5 centimeters to 7.6 centimeters) through Sunday night.

The Seattle Times reports storms have delivered more snow to Seattle in the first days of February than it usually gets in a year.

Seattle schools will be closed Monday. Other area schools will also be closed.
