PORTLAND, Ore. — Have any outdoor plans this weekend? We're going to be be mainly dry across the metro area....we will be seeing patchy areas of morning fog Saturday, but in terms of heavy rainy conditions we're going to be more dry than wet. If you're traveling over the mountain passes there will be snow covered roads with maybe a little accumulation during the morning before seeing drier weather by the later part of the afternoon. Highs for Saturday will be right around the mid 40s, and we'll be staying mainly dry for Sunday too with more morning fog rolling in.
For the mountains, a winter weather advisory remains in effect until later this evening, mainly for the central Oregon Cascades. Be prepared for winter driving over the mountain passes.
All total since last Tuesday, Portland and Salem have seen near to over an inch of rainfall. Cascade resorts have picked up roughly 20" of new snow. Timberline and Meadows report 30 inch snow bases.
