There was a dusting of snow at Sunrise earlier this week. Today it's Paradise's turn. This is a screen grab from the webcam that looks toward the Henry M. Jackson Memorial Visitor Center at Mount Rainier National Park.

With temperatures hovering around 32 degrees much of the night, there was a little snow on the ground.

The snow level has been around 5,000 feet, but is expected to rise to about 6,500 feet by Thursday and getting higher through the weekend, according to the National Weather Service forecast.

There must be plenty of new snow at Camp Muir, however, the webcam lens appears covered with snow or ice and you can't see anything.
