  • Special Weather Statement for Upper Hood River Valley County, Oregon
  • Special Weather Statement issued December 22 at 8:31AM PST by NWS
  • Effective: Friday, December 22, 2017 at 8:31 a.m.
  • Expires: Friday, December 22, 2017 at 3 p.m.
  • ...WINTER WEATHER POSSIBLE THIS WEEKEND TO LOW ELEVATIONS IN THE
    INLAND AREAS OF SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON AND FAR NORTHWEST OREGON...
    A weak warm front over southwest Washington and northwest Oregon
    today will produce some light rain at low elevations today as
    temperatures are above freezing. Strong east winds are expected
    to develop later tonight and Saturday in and near the outlet of
    the Columbia Gorge. This could cool the air mass enough to produce
    some light snow or patchy freezing rain early Saturday morning in
    and just downstream of the Gorge. This front and associated
    moisture will move east of the area Saturday afternoon.
    A better chance of a wintry mix of freezing rain or light snow at
    low elevations is possible late Saturday night into Sunday
    morning as a storm system moves into the area from the Pacific and
    overruns cold air over the lowlands.
    There is still a lot of uncertainty in the forecast for a wintry
    mix of precipitation Saturday night and Sunday. Be sure to stay
    tuned to your favorite weather news source for the latest trends
    in this developing situation.

  • Special Weather Statement for Upper Hood River Valley County, Oregon
  • Special Weather Statement issued September 16 at 3:01PM PDT by NWS
  • Effective: Saturday, September 16, 2017 at 11:54 p.m.
  • Expires: Sunday, September 17, 2017 at 1:15 p.m.
  • ...A CHANGE TO COOL AND WET WEATHER BEGINNING SUNDAY...
    A developing low pressure system in the Gulf of Alaska will
    settle over the Pacific Northwest this week. Expect much cooler
    temperatures and several rounds of rain and snow in the high
    Cascades. Rain will begin Sunday afternoon and continue at times
    through much of the week. Snow levels will drop to 5000 to 6000
    feet by Monday and remain near that level through the remainder of
    the week.
    The series of weather system through the first half of the week
    will bring increasing prospects for seeing substantial rainfall.
    While this will be favorable for suppressing the regions
    wildfires, it will also increase the chances for seeing flash
    flooding and debris flows in and below the burn scars. Rainfall
    potential increases each day early this week, likely culminating
    with the potential for some heavy rainfall Tuesday night into
    Wednesday when the risk of flash flooding is greatest in the areas
    with burn scars.
    People planning travel or outdoor activities, especially in the
    mountains should be prepared for the changing conditions.
