I’m taking our four year old to the dentist in a few minutes…but I wanted to give you a 60 second snow update based on everything I looked at this morning.
Question: Will We See Snow This Weekend?
Answer: I think it’s pretty likely that most of us see snowflakes on Sunday & Monday. But I can’t say everyone will. On Sunday, any showers should be dropping wet snow since the air above is so cold.
Question: Will We Have A Snow Storm This Weekend That Shuts Down The City?
Answer: No. This is more a snow shower and sun break situation–and we may see more sun than showers in the Willamette Valley on Sunday & Monday when the air is at it’s coldest.
Question: Will We See Accumulating Snow This Weekend?
Answer: Any Willamette Valley snow accumulation will likely be light, spotty and temporary. Most or all of the weekend we’ll stay above freezing. There might be a surprise sticking snow exception to this somewhere in hilly parts of the Willamette Valley (West Hills, etc) but most places I do not expect much if anything to stick.
Question: Would You Suggest Stocking Up On Toilet Paper, Magazines And Firewood In Case This Turns Into The Storm Of The Century
Answer: Uh, I’d save that for a bigger snow situation!
Question: Will I Find Snow Covered Roads Anywhere This Weekend?
Answer: By Sunday, you may find winter driving conditions over the coast range passes and you can expect them over the Cascades. Beach cities could even see snow showers and a ‘possible dusting on the beach’ from any heavy snow showers that pass by. I love it when that happens…even if it never lasts!
