A little more mountain snow


Happy Sunday, Central Oregon!

The winter weather warning in effect for the east side of the Cascades is still in effect, and we are starting to see the real impact now. It started out in the rain in the mountains, but slowly higher elevations see more snow as temperatures drop tonight.

Most towns still experience above average temperatures, so don’t expect snow north of Sunriver and east of Sisters. In fact, the mountains could still see mixed precipitation throughout the night. The model predicts that Bachelor Mountain will receive about 2-3 inches of fresh snow overnight.

The rest of us will be warming up here for the next few days until our upper quarantine by Wednesday before cooling off before Christmas weekend.

As it stands, we’re looking at a 50% chance of snowfall on Christmas Day in Redmond.
