We'll be on the southern boundary of this very cold air mass so temperatures here won't be as cold as areas north of Eugene and east of the Cascades. For us, this will […]

Chances here aren't zero, either, if cold air slips more south. Locally, snow levels through Tuesday will roller-coaster between 1000 […]

Snow levels will mainly stay above 1500' today, 1000' on Thursday. HOWEVER, Thursday through early Friday morning, it's possible for the snow level to drop to 600' at times if enough cold air comes in. IF anything falls below 1000', it would be light - just a dusting to an inch or so. NO WORRIES […]
