Beautiful pic from the AQUA satellite at midday. Snow covered terrain east of the Cascades. If you look closely you can identify a bunch of features, some man-made. The Roosevelt Fire burn area is still there east of The Dalles, plus the cleared forests underneath the cross-Cascade power line corridors. Lots of urban concrete/homes/pavement too.
Those snow-covered areas will be REALLY cold the next few nights. Lots of below zero readings likely in Central Oregon. West of the Cascades we should settle down into the low-mid 20s tonight and then some upper teens in the colder outlying areas (Hillsboro/Battle Ground) the following 2 nights. But that afternoon sunshine is sure glorious!
