Early Snowfall Transforms Oregon Mountains Into 'Winter Wonderland'

Snow blanketed mountain ranges in Oregon on Saturday, September 28, the National Weather Service (NWS) said.

On Saturday morning, snow was recorded above 4,000 to 5,000 feet in the Cascade mountain range, according to the NWS. More snowfall was projected for Saturday and Sunday, with snow reaching lower levels of 2,000 to 3,000 feet.

The snowfall was a “rather early arrival” for the area, and created a “winter wonderland,” the weather service said.

A winter weather advisory went into effect on Saturday for areas near the Cascades above 4,000 feet.

The NWS said between one and four inches of snow could accumulate on the “major” mountain passes and five to 10 inches of snow could collect on higher peaks.
