Moist tropical air will pour into the Pacific Northwest this weekend and the start of next week. Most of the rain and snow accumulation will occur Sunday into Monday when the atmospheric river is aided by a strong front draped over the region. Overall, look for a rainy end of February if you’re staying in the westside valleys. Snow levels will stay around 3000 to 3500 feet on average, so locations above that elevation will see snow with this weather event. Stay tuned for more details over the next few days.

Rain and snow will contribute to slippery roadways. Make sure to carry chains for your tires as well as food, water, blankets, medicine, and a fully charged phone when traveling. Check ODOT or CalTrans for road conditions before you begin traveling.
