Snow is forecast to hit the Cascade passes tonight in Oregon and Washington. That means no more putting off those final late-autumn chores.
The National Weather Service says freezing levels will drop to 2,500 feet in Washington, then fluctuate as heavier snowfall hits this weekend. Oregon's passes will freeze tonight.
The good news, according to UW atmospheric sciences professor Cliff Mass, is that weather models show things warming up next week. So perhaps traveling will be drama-free for Thanksgiving. Fingers crossed!
Now that you've (hopefully) done your early autumn and mid-autumn chores, take these finals steps to get ready for winter.
