Snow weighs down the branches of trees as heavy snow in 2021 blanked parts of the Willamette Valley in West Salem.

Winter arrives in full force across northwest Oregon this week, with multiple weather systems bringing heavy snow to mountain passes and wet, chilly conditions to the Willamette Valley that could usher flurries to Salem, Portland and Eugene.  

Odds of significant snow on the Willamette Valley floor is low — a 10-20% chance Tuesday and Thursday, National Weather Service meteorologist Colby Neuman said. The odds of snow just above the Willamette Valley, in towns such as Mill City, Oakridge, Detroit or at Silver Falls State Park, will be much higher, he said.

Snow won’t be in question at Oregon’s Cascade Range pass levels, with places such as Santiam and Willamette passes, along with the Government Camp area on Mount Hood, getting anywhere from one to three feet of snow across the week.
