Light Snow for Portland, Oregon Coast Range, Maybe Beaches

(Portland, Oregon) – February remains colder than normal for Oregon, and again there is a chance of lower elevations seeing some small amounts of snow over the weekend and on Monday. Even the Oregon coast may see a few white flakes, according to the National Weather Service in Portland.

A weather system begins dropping south from Canada on Friday, which the NWS said will bring rain to the valley and snow to the mountains on Friday. Meanwhile, a cold front stalls over northwest Oregon in the early weekend, and bundled with other factors creates a “frontal zone.”

“This zone will resemble an atmospheric river, potentially bringing significant rain and mountain snow to at least some portion of northwest Oregon Saturday night through Sunday morning,” the NWS said. “The threat of low-elevation snow continues into early next week.”

It may even mean a dusting along the Oregon coast on Monday. The weekend along the beaches remains mostly cloudy and slightly rainy to heavy rains, with highs and lows in the 40s. Sunday night the low drops, however - down to the 30s.

Early and late on Monday, there is a chance of rain and snow mixed, as well as early on Tuesday. During the days it remains partly sunny to mostly cloudy and around 42. Wednesday normalizes to simply chances of rain and partly sunny.

The Oregon Coast Range is another matter, however. Some snow accumulation in the higher elevations is possible all weekend. Mostly, it’s rain and snow showers, although the daytime high may only get to 39 on Saturday. Weekend lows will be in the low 20s, with snow accumulations possible but only up to about half an inch. This is the scenario from Friday through Monday, with Tuesday resuming normal rain.

There are no issues in sight for the coast range passes of Highway 26, Highway 6 or Highway 18.

For Portland, some slight chances of a dusting exist for the over night hours during the weekend, from Saturday through Monday night. Little to no accumulation is expected in the metro area, however.

Along the Oregon coast, wave height will get a little exciting over the weekend. Saturday will have combined seas up around 13 feet at times, but lowering quickly to under ten feet on Sunday and thereafter. See Oregon Coast Traffic Conditions - See Oregon Coast Weather.
