Thanksgiving Travel Weather for Oregon, the Coast, Portland
(Portland, Oregon) – Big surprise: the forecast for the Thanksgiving weekend around Oregon is a mix of sun and rain. But one slightly bigger surprise: there will be snow in some areas on Saturday. Snow flakes may even show up on the Oregon coast.
Central Oregon, eastern Oregon and the Cascade mountain passes will get some snow accumulation.
The National Weather Service (NWS) said the state has experienced near record warmth recently, and mild but weather is coming up for Thanksgiving Day. But something white lurks in the near-future for western Oregon.
“Snow levels will lower into at least the foothills late Friday and early Saturday, nighttime temperatures will likely bottom out below freezing Saturday night, and east winds will return to the mouth of the Columbia River Gorge,” the NWS said.
Meanwhile, the central and eastern part of the state will get highs in the 20's and 30's on Saturday and Sunday, with some light to medium snow hitting various areas.
Pendleton will get as low as 11 degrees on Saturday night.
Saturday will be the cold one for almost everywhere in Oregon. Along the Oregon coast range, some light snow is possible. Even beach towns may get as low as 29 degrees on Saturday overnight, and some snow flakes are possible there.
Snow is not expected to stick anywhere but in the Cascades.
Sunday will be cold but dry and sunny all around the state, which will make for good travel conditions for those heading home that day.
On Monday morning, some freezing rain is possible in areas like the Willamette Valley and Portland, warming up a bit to a mix of sun and some rain later that day.
