We’ll have to keep an eye on that situation. A frontal system will approach Oregon over the weekend returning the threat of falling snow levels.

Because weather forecasting is a combination of science, intuition, and timing there can be no absolute guarantees that individual forecasts will be 100% accurate. Nature is in a constant state of flux and sudden unexpected weather events can happen.
