With snow already falling in places like Montana, Canada, and Colorado, it was just a matter of time before snow hit the Pacific Northwest. Turns out that snow will kick off the month of September for Oregon.
The summit of Mt Hood looks to receive a up to 4″ on the optimistic side of things but other areas including Mount Bachelor and Mount Jefferson should see significant bursts of snowfall at higher elevations.

Back country travelers need to be prepared for temperatures at or below freezing with the possibility of light snow accumulations.
