    The weather pattern this week will feature the coldest weather of the season, and the week may end with snow.

    A series of major winter storms will target Oregon through Monday. One storm could slip northward for a time this weekend.

    Some snow fell in Salem and Portland, Ore., on Friday afternoon and created some travel issues.

    According to Senior Meteorologist John Gresiak, "Just enough cold air may linger this weekend as moisture moves in from the Pacific Ocean to allow some snow to fall."

    There is a chance of enough snow late Saturday into early Sunday to make for slippery travel from Olympia to Bellingham, Wash. Snow could even fall for a time around Portland, Ore.

    Rounds of heavy snow are forecast for the Oregon and southern Washington Cascades into early next week due to several storms.

    Temperatures are forecast to recover into the 40s later Sunday around Seattle, so that only rain falls around sea level and on the hills in the region.
