PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Rain showers turn to snow showers!
Snow levels are lowering to the valley floor Thursday morning. We could have slushy snow on the ground around Portland. It will be enough to mess up a morning commute, but it won’t be equal for everyone.
The timing for snow showers arriving near Portland could be anytime before sunrise with an emphasis on higher-impact snow falling around 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. Snow may linger until late morning.
Accumulations are more likely for the hills like Sylvan and Skyline. Elsewhere it’s hit-or-miss snow. This snow WILL NOT be distributed equally.
