Low-elevation snow is likely to impact Oregon and the Willamette Valley this coming week.

Heavy snow will blast Oregon’s mountain roads while the Willamette Valley will have a good chance of sticking snow Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

The system could bring school delays or cancellations, particularly in the hills and higher elevations on the edge of the valley, and into the foothills around 700 feet to 1,000 feet.

The Willamette Valley’s lowest elevations are most likely to see just a dusting to 1 inch of snow, with those numbers rising in the hills and higher elevations in cities such as Portland, Salem and Eugene.

“On the valley floor it looks like an inch at worst, with a lot of people seeing flakes but not accumulation,” National Weather Service meteorologist Tyler Kranz said. “But that changes in a hurry once you got up just a little ways in elevation.”
