I realize that it’s short notice, but I’m issuing a POWDER ALERT for TOMORROW – Tuesday, December 30th.

After a wild couple of weeks (and a nasty weekend in the mountains), the weather is returning to “normal” – meaning lots of rain in the lowland valleys… and lots of snow in the higher elevations. Tomorrow looks excellent with 1-2 feet of new powder awaiting us. The top 6 inches should be of excellent quality, as temperatures will fall into the upper teens or low 20s late tonight into tomorrow morning. The snow level should lower to 1,500 feet by tonight. For up to the minute conditions, check out the Ski Oregon conditions page or follow us on Twitter.

Looking further ahead, there are several storms lined up in the Pacific – and they’re aimed right at the Northwest. The freezing level is going to bounce up and down with each arriving and passing storm, so watch the forecast closely, as the timing of each arriving weather system will determine when the freezing level rises and falls.

Enjoy the powder,
