Ice Storm Warning: Freezing rain will cause ice accumulation

Ice Storm Warning: Freezing rain will cause ice accumulation”

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch, in effect from late Saturday night through Monday afternoon. The weather service says up 12 inches (30 centimeters) of snow are possible in the White Mountains.

This is when the combination of the storm track, moisture and cold air can work together to produce as much as 6 inches in the Seattle metro and an additional 4 inches in the Portland metro, which is about what those cities average in a year. This comes on the heels of the 1 inch snowfall Portland received on Thursday. Snow or ice - or both - is forecasted through at least next Friday.

More freezing rain will be possible later on Monday as well as a cold front moves through, according to forecasters.

Icy conditions will also be a problem. With the wet snow already on trees, the ice forming may cause some branches or trees to fall, and widespread power outages are possible.

However, there's a chance for more winter mischief on Wednesday, according to forecasters, but it's too early to say if freezing rain or snow will be an issue. Forecasts call for rain and a high of 44. Northeast wind around 5 miles per hour. Forecasters aren't expecting much more than an inch or 2 across interior MA, with mainly an inch or less predicted elsewhere.

In towns like Multnomah Falls, Oregon, in the Columbia River Gorge, people venturing outside will be greeted by 40 to 60 miles per hour gusts and blinding snow in the height of the storms.

It's still a low-confidence forecast, as is the case most often with winter precipitation in Alabama, but the threat is enough to warrant a heads up. The gorge could see up to 9 inches of new snow from Friday night through Saturday.
