Drew Jackson’s Powder Alert: Spring Powder on the Way!
Winter was late to arrive this season… but it sure is hanging on! We just had the snowiest March since 1977 (at Government Camp), and the heavy snow pattern will continue into the first few days of April.
A new storm arriving Wednesday night will bring increasing snow to the Cascades and Blue Mountains. The heaviest snow will fall Thursday morning, but nearly continuous snow is likely all the way through Thursday night.
Snowfall totals should be close to 2 feet from Wednesday night through Friday morning!
Initially, the snow will be a little wet, as the freezing level will be near 4,000 feet early Thursday. However, the freezing level will fall during the day Thursday, dropping to 1,500 feet by Friday morning. The snow will become increasingly dry and fluffy from Thursday afternoon into the evening. Thursday will be the stormy, snowy and powdery all day… Friday will be calmer & drier with fresh powder in the morning.
Enjoy the endless winter!
