After a break in the weather on Friday, heavy snow returns this weekend into early next week.

A new storm system will drop into Oregon from the northwest on Saturday bringing heavy snow showers. While there will be some temporary breaks in the falling snow, I expect nearly continuous snowfall from Saturday morning through Monday morning – with a storm total of 20-30 inches likely!

The snow level will be no higher than 1,500 feet into early next week, and with temperatures at the ski areas in the teens to low 20s, this new snow will be about as light & fluffy as it gets in the Northwest.

Similar to the last storm, this coming storm will feature the heaviest snow in the north Oregon Cascades and the Blue Mountains in northeast Oregon. But the mountains in central and southern Oregon will get significant snow too.

High winds are a possibility again, however, so there will be heavy drifting…and lift operations will likely be affected at higher-elevation ski areas.

Enjoy!
