Heavy Snow for the Northern Rockies Thursday and Friday

12 Oct 2017, 11:31 am

An area of low pressure moving through the region will bring the potential for heavy snow to the Northern Rockies and Cascades Thursday and Friday.  This will be the first significant snowfall for the higher elevations of northeast Oregon and southeast Washington of the season.

Snowfall accumulation will be above 3500 feet with the heaviest snowfall Thursday afternoon through Friday morning.  Winter weather advisories are spread out through Oregon, Washington and Idaho.

A winter weather advisory means that snowfall will likely impact road conditions and make travel difficult.  Snow covered roads and low visibility will all be possible, so you will want to use caution while driving in these areas under the advisory.

Here is a look at some of the snowfall potential for this region through the weekend.
