We’re in continous coverage now on FOX12…a busy day! Snow has been relatively light for most of the metro area so far, but a heavier band of snow is moving into the north Willamette Valley right now. Basically everything is going according to plan. Those of you that have seen nothing so far (Woodburn, Molalla, Silverton) will finally get some snow.
That means the snow should start adding up quickly between now and 7pm. Looks like parts of the south valley are already up around 10″! I still think 2-5″ is a good total for the metro area. I am a little concerned looking at the visible satellite pic that there is going to be quite a dumping, maybe more than this forecast.
You can clearly see the solid clouds (with heavier snowfall) north of the low pressure center…west of the coastline.
