Finally, some good weather news! A change in the weather pattern is on the way… and heavy snow is headed towards the mountains of Oregon later this week.

The fun begins Friday. A very strong cold front will charge through Oregon that evening, bringing heavy snow and very strong winds to the mountains. At this point, I expect a bona fide blizzard… with at least 12 inches of new snow from Friday evening through midday Saturday. In the best case scenario, there could be up to 2 feet of new snow by midday Sunday. And the snow level will be low enough such that heavy snow will fall at all ski areas regardless of elevation.

If this storm delivers what I expect, then there may be enough snow to get some of the lifts turning at the ski areas by late this weekend or early next week.

Keep thinking snow,
