Drew Jackson’s Powder Alert: Deep Powder This Week
This Powder Alert is for MONDAY, MARCH 29TH and TUESDAY, MARCH 30TH
After last Friday’s epic snow, here comes another round! The next storm will blow through Oregon Sunday night through Tuesday. Initially, from Sunday night through midday Monday, the snow level will be a little high… 4,500 to 5,000 feet. But, the snow level will drop by Monday afternoon to between 2,500 and 3,000 feet. How much new snow? A LOT!
Sunday evening through Monday morning – expect 4-8″ of snow at the higher Cascade ski areas.
During the day Monday – expect another 4-8″ of new snow throughout the mountains of Oregon… with the snow level falling to 2,500-3,000 feet. The snow will become increasingly dry and fluffy as the day progresses.
Monday night into Tuesday morning – there should be yet another 4-8″ of excellent quality new snow… with the snow level remaining below 3,000 feet.
During the day Tuesday – cold snow showers continue… with another few inches likely.
All told, I believe we’re looking at a 2-3 day snow total of 1-3 feet!!! It will be a windy few days, however, so the normal disclaimers involving blowing and drifting snow at the higher elevations will certainly apply.
And the good news keeps coming. While there will be a little break in the snowy pattern Wednesday and Thursday, it will remain cold… so the snow should stay in excellent condition. And another major snow storm is due Friday… which means you can expect another Powder Alert from me later this week!
Never mind what the calendar says, this could end up being the best week of Oregon powder of the season!!! Have fun, drive safe, and enjoy the face shots! For up-to-date snow conditions, please visit SkiOregon.com/Conditions
