Portland metro Friday weather: Snow and ice expected to continue into weekend


Lighter amounts are expected across far southeastern VA, where a winter weather advisory is in effect.

Meteorologist David Martin said it appears the storm will be fast-moving, but could drop several inches of snow, sleet and freezing rain between Monday night and Tuesday. Accumulations of snow, if any, are expected to be on the lighter side. The Thursday and Friday storms could have similar effects, Martin said.

"While it may not sound like a big deal to those in the Midwest, the last time we saw 1 or more inches of snow here was on Feb 10th, 2019", tweeted the Portland National Weather Service office.

The blockbuster snow event will arrive late Friday into Saturday, tracking closer to Washington state and setting the stage for heavier widespread snowfall. Snow or ice - or both - is forecasted through at least next Friday. The weather service says up 12 inches (30 centimeters) of snow are possible in the White Mountains. New accumulations of 1 to 4 inches are possible.

Kim Cattrall , who played Samantha Jones, did not sign on for the 10-episode show, having outgrown the franchise. Parker continued: " Cynthia [Nixon ], Kristin [Davis ], and I are all excited about the time that has passed".

More freezing rain will be possible later on Monday as well as a cold front moves through, according to forecasters. Forecasters aren't expecting much more than an inch or 2 across interior MA, with mainly an inch or less predicted elsewhere. Northeast wind around 5 miles per hour.

Sunday will remain cold with some chances of early snow or freezing rain. A good chunk of Sunday will be dry with highs in the upper 30s and lower 40s.

These totals are dwarfed by the forecast totals across the higher elevations of the Cascades in Washington and northern Oregon.

The first round of potential winter precipitation could arrive late tonight into Saturday morning and mainly affect northwest Alabama.
