Snow This Weekend: December 17-18, 2010

The National Weather Service in Portland has informed us that we are likely to see a little snow tonight and early tomorrow morning before the snow level rises to 2000 feet and turns to rain for us in Columbia County. Expected amounts by noon Saturday are 1-2 inches at the lowest elevations levels. Most of you who live in higher elevations know that this could end up being a couple of more inches for you, however.
The good news is that temperatures countywide are expected to get up to around 40 Saturday afternoon, so the snow should be short-lived. Further information will be sent out if need be.
Remember to check the following websites for more information at work or home:
* TripCheck--ODOT's website for statewide highway information: (you may also dial 511)
* National Weather Service in Portland:
* Columbia County Emergency Management Blog:
Please pass along to others in your organization.
