We have been generally unsettled in the western United States the last few days and weeks. This weekend will follow suit, with the potential for heavy mountain snowfall and coastal rainfall.

Snow Potential

A winter weather advisory continues through the evening and into early Monday morning for parts of Washington and Oregon, where high elevations could see over a foot of snowfall. This will generally not impact too many roadways, but locally challenging travel is anticipated in the Cascades.

Our forecast model is highlighting the potential for a foot plus of snow up and down the Cascades into Washington and Oregon through tonight.


The mountains will stop a lot of the moisture from traveling into eastern Washington and Oregon, but expect a generally cool and cloudy day throughout the Pacific Northwest with bursts of heavy rain and snow at times.


A brief lull in the activity is expected Sunday night into Monday morning, before our next wave moves onshore.

Winds will also be strong at times this afternoon in combination with high tide. The winds could push water onshore and contribute to coastal flooding, up to about half a foot along the immediate coastline.
