Details for Tuesday, February 21, 2023
PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Another round of rain, wind and snow is finding its way back into the region Tuesday.
Snow elevations are on the move, going as low as 1,400 ft. Tuesday. That means higher elevations will see a few fast-moving flurries throughout the day. Most of the snow will be lost Tuesday thanks to mild temperatures Monday.
Rain accumulation will be near almost a quarter of an inch along the Willamette Valley throughout the day Tuesday. Greater amounts will fall over the coast nearing a half inch.
That changes as cold air returns to the region Tuesday night into Wednesday. Afternoon highs will struggle to warm into the low 40s.
That’s where snow elevations could dip close to the valley floor throughout the day Wednesday. Timing will be important when talking about snow accumulation.
