PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — You might have heard rumors of snow in the forecast for Friday, but don’t hold your breath.

School closings and delays

We have snow showers and flurries passing through, but temperatures are too warm for accumulation below 1,000’ in the Willamette Valley.  Snow has been falling in the Coast Range for several hours.  A Winter Weather Advisory continues until noon with 2”-5” possible.  Along the coast, we’ve seen a mix of rain and snow.  Places like Pacific City have seen light accumulation.

We’ll have dry periods this afternoon, interrupted occasionally by passing showers.  The heavy showers may contain small hail or snowflakes.  High temperatures will be in the low to mid-40s.


Saturday looks nice. Areas of morning fog give way to afternoon sun. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper-40s.

Snow levels remain low Sunday and Monday. Expect mixed rain and snow showers both days. Not expecting much, if any accumulation below 1,000’.
