On Dec. 2 Oregon Live shares a weather report that has Portlanders excited and hesitant at the same time. This week, below freezing temperatures are expected all the way to the sea-level but meteorologists say that snow is not likely quite yet.
Traditionally, Portland doesn't receive snow every year but rather a big snow fall every 4-5 years, with the last being in 2008. That means that there stands a good chance of a good (think huge) snowfall of more than a couple inches. This week a could front is moving in and temperatures are expected to drop well into the teens over night with a high in the 30s at most. No precipitation is being recorded, however a chance of snow is still possible later in the week.
Forecasters share that a thick winter coat, gloves, and a scarf are advised, especially for children that might have to be out in the weather, but an umbrella won't be needed because temperatures will be too cold for rain. Drivers should expect very icy roads as Monday brought a significant amount of rain for the city already.
Are you a Portlander wanting snow? When was the last big snowfall that you remember?
