Snow has been falling all morning along the coast from about Tillamook north to Astoria. Several inches have fallen in the coast range along the Hwy 26 corridor over the sunset summit. Kelso / Longview also saw a blanket of white this morning. All of the snow showers remained north and west of the metro area.

As today moves along, all of the snow showers at the lowest elevations will change to rain as the snow level rises to 1,500ft. by midday. A quiet day is on the way tomorrow. Over the weekend, a system will brush by off the coast, but models are suggesting all of the precipitation associated with this system will head south off the coast leaving a mostly dry weekend in the valley and in the Cascades. The coast is likely to see some rain from the system passing by on Friday afternoon and evening.
