April 4, 2021 - Snow in Oregon



A pair of late-March snowstorms rolled across Oregon, increasing the
snow cap in the higher elevations. According to local news media, on
Monday, March 22, 2021 roughly a foot of snow was reported in the
northern Cascades and a second storm on March 25 added another foot to
some areas in the higher elevations. On March 24, the base at Mt. Hood
Meadows was reported at 153 inches (12.75 feet; 388.6 cm)—before the
incoming storm.

While the fresh snow excited skiers at many resorts across Oregon’s
many mountains, precipitation at lower elevations fell as rain and
adding to the spring greening—and the contrast could easily be seen
from space. On April 1, the Moderate Resolution Imaging
Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on board NASA’s Terra satellite acquired a
true-color image of springtime in Oregon. Snow coats the Cascades,
which run north to south in the west and the Rockies in the east. Mt.
Hood Meadows sits at the northern end of the Cascades in this image
while the Columbia River (north) forms the border between Oregon and
Washington. Oregon’s forests appear deep green and drier land,
especially in the rain shadow just east of the Cascades are tan tinted
with green.
