Does it snow in Portland?
The short answer: Yes.
While it doesn’t snow often, and some winters it does not snow at all, we generally see one or two light snowfalls a year. On the morning of Tuesday, December 18th it furiously flurried for about an hour. It stuck to the deck and grass, but not the pavement. Within an hour after it stopped snowing, it was gone.
Sometimes it does snow a lot here, like in December of 2008. But big snows are rare.
