US National Weather Service Portland Oregon reported at 4:48 AM this morning: Snow across the Cascade Passes today will continue tonight and Friday. Heaviest amounts will be over the South Washington Cascades, esp. above 5000 feet. Check TripCheck.com and WSDOT for potential travel restrictions.
And when all that snow melts: Check out our neighbors at the Northwest River Forecast Center! They forecast for almost all of the rivers in the Pacific Northwest and they're adding even more forecast sites this spring. Follow them here on Facebook for updates and find river information on their website, https://www.nwrfc.noaa.gov/rfc/.
