…LIGHT ACCUMULATING SNOW POSSIBLE LATE THIS EVENING AND

A low pressure system dropping south along the coast tonight and
early Thursday will bring the potential for some light
accumulating snow to the South Washington and North Oregon
coastal areas. Precipitation will likely start out this evening as
light snow or a rain/snow mix, with little to no accumulation to
start the event as surface temperatures will likely remain just
above freezing. Precipitation will likely transition to all snow
overnight as winds turn offshore, with some light accumulations
possible between midnight and 6 AM. Expect up to an inch in places
by early Thursday morning, with chances for accumulating snow
increasing as you get higher in elevation.
