More than 60,000 people lost power during the blizzard, which triggered major travel disruptions including hundreds of canceled flights and the closure of a 20-mile stretch of Interstate 90 in central Washington due to spin-outs and poor visibility.
About 200 flights were cancelled at Seattle-Tacoma and Portland worldwide airports yesterday, roughly matching the number of last Friday's cancellations.
For Sunday, KIRO 7's Morgan Palmer predicts a "quick-hitting weaker system", with a couple of inches of snow in south Seattle. Seattle averages 6.8 inches of snow over the course of an entire year.
Further inland, some areas of Washington state are reporting 12 to 18 inches of snowfall.
Another cold winter storm is on the way to Northern California this weekend.
"Winds gusting to 30-40 miles per hour across most of Washington will cause blowing and drifting of snow to continue, especially east of the Cascades, on Saturday", Dan Pydynowski, an AccuWeather senior meteorologist said.
"Everyone in our state needs to focus on preparing for the snow and staying safe", Inslee said in a statement.
About 180 people spent the night at an emergency shelter set up at Seattle Center, with officials going out again on February 9 to get other homeless residents to safety. Only drivers collecting or delivering bulk milk products or de-icing road salt from that agency's locations are exempt, the governor said.
Schools and offices closed early in the Seattle area, and commuters swarmed the roads in an effort to get home before the heaviest snow arrived.
The areas in the mountains could see anywhere from 10 to 15 inches of accumulation during the storm.
Wintry winds from the Fraser River Valley in Canada are expected to blow into the Puget Sound region at around 20 to 35 miles per hour.
Seattle's high is forecast for 35 degrees Fahrenheit with the normal high 49 degrees, CNN's Brink said.
Those temperatures, combined with the wind, could make it feel like it's in the teens Saturday across the Seattle region.
Forecasters have warned of more to come on Sunday and Monday.
Earlier this week, about half a foot of snow hit some area of Seattle from an earlier snowstorm.
