... Low snow levels through early next week...

A cool and unstable air mass will linger over the region for the
next several days. Low elevation temperatures will hover in the
lower to middle 30s each night. Most accumulating snow will
remain around 1,000 feet or higher. However, some showers may
bring visible snow down to sea level for most of the next several
days. The best chance for brief low level accumulations will be
during the overnight and early daylight hours when ground
temperatures are coldest. Any accumulations will be short-lived
and should melt within a couple hours. Above 1,000 feet, 1 to 2
inches of accumulation are possible each day. This would impact
many Coast Range passes along with the Cascade foothills and the
highest terrain of the Portland and Vancouver Metro area.

Friday appears to have the best potential for accumulating snow as
a compact upper low will slide south along the coast centered
about 200 miles offshore. Weather models are currently keeping
most precipitation along the Coast Range and westward. However,
a couple are hinting at potential for a brief snow band to form
over the north Willamette Valley and lower Columbia River area,
including the Metro area around the time of the morning commute.
The range of possible accumulation amounts at elevations close to
sea level are mostly less than a half inch, however, one model
indicates 1 to 2 inches ending around 10 am.

Those traveling over the next several days should stay up to date
with the latest forecasts and especially for Friday as details
evolve.
