Did we say ZERO to 1/2″ in the lowest elevations? Well it ended up as ZERO to 3″ in the lowest elevations of the metro area and Willamette Valley. Quite a wide variety of snow totals…here’s the final snow map, I’ll add in a few numbers tomorrow.
That disturbance really dumped the heavier stuff on the eastside and then up into Clark County. West and south metro were left out again. Salem had nothing, except in the hills. So in reality most of the western valleys of Oregon had very little.
So officially at the NWS office we now have two measurable snowfalls this season (Christmas Eve and Presidents Day “Eve”), plus one Trace (Valentine’s Day). Nice holiday lineup. What’s coming on St. Patrick’s Day?
Enjoy the bright sunshine tomorrow and drive carefully the next 10 hours as roads freeze up.
