The snow is welcome news for Oregonians looking to find spring powder turns before turning in the skis for paddles, harnesses, and bikes. With 592″ of seasonal snowfall at Mt Bachelor and 618″ at Timberline, local weather officials are warning locals about flood danger and we recommend everyone make sure their property is protected from oncoming waters before heading to higher elevations looking for pow.

Flood Warning (NWS Pendelton)

Increased runoff from snowmelt will cause the Naches River near Naches Washington to rise above flood stage after midnight tonight. The river is expected to continue rising, reaching 18.1 feet by Friday Afternoon. This will cause minor flooding along the river from Naches to Yakima. The fast moving water is very cold and banks of the river may be unstable and eroded. Stay away from the edge of the river, even a short time in the cold water could cause hypothermia.
