EUGENE, Ore. - Will it snow in Eugene?

The National Weather Service forecasts the freezing level will fall as low as 600 feet Monday night.

That's low enough to mean snow in the South Hills and on Spencer Butte.

Conditions in Downtown Eugene, at 412 feet above sea level, could include snow showers mixed with rain, according to the forecast.

The chance of snow in town follows the certainty of snow in the Cascades, where 20 inches of fresh snow fell at Santiam Pass between 5 a.m. Sunday and 5 a.m. Monday, the weather service said. Santiam Junction got 10 inches in the same period; Willamette Pass got 8 inches.

Another 6 to 12 inches could fall in the Cascades of Lane County on Monday and overnight into Tuesday.

Mary's Peak outside Corvallis recorded the strongest wind gust in Oregon as the storm roared ashored Sunday. A 101 mph gust hit the tallest point in the Coast Range just before 6 p.m. Sunday.

At the Eugene airport, sustained winds of 20 to 25 mph peaked after 10 p.m. with a 48 mph blast.
