Winter Advisories for Cascades, Southern Oregon, North California

Published 11/08/2010

(Government Camp, Oregon) - The Oregon Cascades are about to get hit with a winter advisory for anything above 3500 feet. The advisory from the National Weather Service (NWS) will be in effect from 10 a.m. on Tuesday to 4 a.m. on Wednesday, and will include the north and central Cascades.

“Snow will begin Tuesday morning around 10 a.m. and continue through Wednesday morning,” the NWS said in a bulletin. Heaviest snow will occur Tuesday afternoon and evening and begin to decrease Wednesday morning.”

The NWS said snow accumulations will wind up around six to 12 inches above that elevation, with up to 18 inches at the ski resorts.

The impact for travelers will mean increased caution over the mountain passes, as the NWS expects visibility to be reduced, and roads will be covered with snow and slippery.

“A winter weather advisory for snow means that periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties,” the NWS said. “Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities.”

In southern Oregon and northern California, a winter weather advisory will be in effect for the same period – 10 a.m. on Tuesday until 4 p.m. on Wednesday, but for elevations above 4,000 feet.

“A winter storm will bring snow to higher terrain in southern Oregon and northern California,” the NWS said. “A cold front will move through the area Tuesday.”

The advisories include towns like Government Camp, Crater Lake, Crescent Lake, Union Creek, Howard Prarie, the Siskiyou Mountains and the Cascades portion of Lane County.
