A Special Weather Statement has been issued by the National Weather Service for light snow possible across all elevations of Northwest Oregon late tonight into Friday morning, and a chance for significant low elevation snow across Northwest Oregon on Friday night and Saturday. A cold air mass will remain over the Pacific Northwest through the weekend, potentially lingering well into next week. There will be additional chances for low elevation snowfall through Wednesday for Northwest Oregon, both along the coast and inland.

The next chance for low elevation snow will be later tonight into Friday morning, mainly across Western Oregon. A band of light precipitation is expected to develop over the region during this time, which will likely result in some snow flurries with little to no accumulation for many locations. However, there are some indications that a steadier snow band may develop, which could result in anywhere from a dusting to up to one inch of snow on the ground by Friday morning. Temperatures will be cold enough for snow to stick to paved surfaces, so even a small amount of snow could cause travel issues during the Friday morning commute.

A more significant weather system will arrive Friday night and Saturday. Snow levels are expected to rise during the day Friday, with precipitation likely to fall as mainly rain below 1,000 feet through early Friday evening. However, snow levels will be lowering again Friday night, likely reaching the lowest elevations by Saturday morning. Heating of the day may allow general snow levels to rise a few hundred feet above sea level by early Saturday afternoon, but accumulating snow will still be possible down to the lowest elevations in any heavier showers. Any wet or slushy roadways Saturday evening are expected to freeze quickly overnight, likely remaining frozen well into the day Sunday.
