This morning's storm produced near 50 mph wind gusts in Portland and Salem. Valley rain totals range from an inch to 1.75 inches, rain that we badly need. The NWS as of 10:30 this morning had not lifted the Flood Watch, however rivers are likely to stay near and below flood stage.
Great news on Mt. Hood as snow levels held near 5,000' last night, dumping 12" of snow at Timberline and Meadows. Skibowl picked up 5" before the snow changed to rain. Cascade travel today will find generally wet passes. Snow levels will lower to 4,500' this afternoon.
Scattered showers for Portland this afternoon with mild temperatures in the 50s and south breezes 5-25 mph. A quiet day Wednesday with a few light showers possible, then heavier rain Thursday morning as our next weather front arrives.
