A series of storm systems will move onshore late this week with snow returning to the mountains. The initial disturbance will allow snow levels to drop to 4500 to 5000 feet late Wednesday night, then remain there through Thanksgiving Day. Two storms will move through southern Oregon Thursday through Friday, resulting in some accumulating snow near pass level, but periods of heavy snow in the mountains above 5500 feet. Several inches of snow will accumulate with the first storm Thanksgiving Day, which could impact passes near Lake of the Woods, but the heaviest snow will fall above 5000 feet. There will be a surge in snow level up above 6000 feet late Thursday night into Friday as the next storm moves onshore, but heavy snow could continue up near Crater Lake. Snow amounts of 1 to 2 feet are possible above 5500 feet through Friday night. Snow levels will drop again Friday night into Saturday morning, down to as low as 3500 feet, but precipitation should be ending then. If you're planning travel over the mountains and especially over the Cascade passes later this week, plan on winter driving conditions. Keep checking back for forecast updates, watches or warnings and please be sure to check road conditions by calling 511 before you head out. $$ MAS
