According to the National Weather Service, colder weather and low elevation snow are possible tonight (3/5) and early Tuesday morning (3/6) for the Portland metro area.
A strong cold front will move across southwest Washington and northwest Oregon today bringing much colder air into the region. Heavy precipitation with the front will draw the snow level lower than normal during the day today and it is possible that some mixed rain and snow may fall at the higher elevations of the Willamette Valley.
Snow showers are expected to be spotty with accumulations of up to one inch mostly in the hills above 200 feet. However, if moisture becomes more organized after midnight tonight, more significant accumulations are possible. Showers are expected to end Tuesday morning with temperatures warming into the mid 40s.
