Low Snow Levels Return This Weekend

By Rod Hill on 2020-01-31

After possible record highs near 60 degrees on this Friday, a Saturday cold front will 
bring much colder air with rain at times, chilly northwest winds and falling snow levels
during the day to 2,000 feet. 

The cool-off continues Saturday night, as snow levels lower to 1,000 feet, impacting both
the Cascade passes and the Coast Range through the day Sunday with snowy travel. 

The 1000 feet snow level could also lead to potential snow on the ground over the high metro 
hills and cities such as Sandy. 

The cold air aloft will trigger Sunday heavy showers over the Rose City with likely hail at times
and a possible a snow mix in the air. 

Monday brings back widespread freezing temps to start the day, but dry weather is expected. 
Snow levels will rise during the day Tuesday as moisture returns.  If Tuesday moisture returns earlier
than expected, a wintry mix will be possible before all changes to rain.
