It looks promising for another round of low elevation snow to
affect northwest Oregon and southwest Washington tonight into
early Thursday. Similar to conditions Tuesday, the lowest
elevations below 500 feet along the coast and in the southern
half of the Willamette Valley may see more of a mixture of rain
and snow, as opposed to predominantly snow over the north

The heaviest amounts will likely be over the Coast Range where 1
to 3 inches appears likely, while in the Lower Columbia and
Willamette Valleys the best guess is for around 1 inch
accumulations. The snow will likely develop this evening in the
north coastal areas, while elsewhere the most likely period for
seeing accumulating snow will be in the late night hours.
