The Unofficial Pow: 10-15″ of Snow For Cascades | 6-12″ For Southern Montana
The area will remain dry Thursday through Friday with rain returning for the weekend. Snow levels will be at 5-6,000ft, so the resorts may see some accumulation. It is the first significant snowfall of the season for the Cascades, so if you are driving in the snow for the first time in a while remember that slow and steady wins the race.
