'Threat for significant snow from Corvallis to Eugene'

EUGENE, Ore. - A cold front lingering over Oregon has changed the forecast, increasing the likelihood of snow down to the valley floor in the southern Willamette Valley.

The National Weather Service said the snow level could fall to 1,100 feet Tuesday night down to 600 feet early Wednesday.

Coupled with a wet weather system pushing into the Pacific Northwest, the revised forecast still calls for snow measured in feet in the Cascades - and the possibility of snow in the higher elevation neighborhoods of Eugene, Corvallis and Albany.

"At this time better chances for accumulating snow on the valley floor is south of Salem, with the highest threat for significant snow accumulation from Corvallis to the Eugene area late tonight and wednesday morning," forecasters said Tuesday afternoon. "The snow level could again get quite low later wednesday night and early Thursday."
