Possible Snow Showers for Eugene and Springfield


Eugene and Springfield residents may be discouraged to see snow showers predicted for later this week.

However, Andy Bryant with the National Weather Service says not to worry because accumulation in the Valley is unlikely.
“We could see a mix of rain and snow and I’m sure it’ll get everybody’s attention if all of a sudden they look out and see snowflakes coming down,” says Bryant. “But even if it does stick, it’s going to melt pretty quickly because the ground is warm - a little bit of excitement but probably not anything that’s going to impact our plans.”

Those living in the surrounding hills can expect a couple inches of snow and the mountain passes could see significant accumulation over the next couple of days. Travelers going through the Cascades should be prepared to deal with snowy road conditions. Because heavy rain and slight flooding is expected to continue, drivers are also advised to watch out for excessive water on roadways and road closures.
