All rain at times for the valley through the day Wednesday

Winter Storm Warning in the Cascades set to expire at 10:00 a.m. this morning

PORTLAND, Ore — Snow covered passes over the Cascades this morning with the snow storm set to taper off into snow showers later this morning as the storm warning expires.  Mt. Hood resorts report a good foot of new snow with additional accumulations during the day.  

Daytime snow levels will hold just above 1,000 feet today.  Valley locations, including Salem and Portland will see rain showers with temps on this Monday in the 40s.  Dry weather takes hold tonight and Tuesday morning with freezing lows expected. 

Rain returns Tuesday afternoon with a push of warmer air that will hold valley temps well above freezing Tuesday night and Wednesday.  The new storm will bring 12-20" of snow above 3,000 feet and heavy valley rainfall that could exceed .75 inches. Behind the Wednesday front, snow levels will lower to near sea level Thursday through Saturday. 

Thursday morning will be the first chance of a snow mix or dusting of snow at lowest elevations.  Showery precip will mix between snow and rain through the day Saturday.  Icy roadway at times will be possible in Portland starting Thursday morning.
