This storm seems to be for real. There is 8-10 inches on the ground in Bend, and it is still snowing. It started out sloppy this morning, around 30 degrees, but has cooled down to the low 20's this evening. Around a foot or so in the last 24 hours in the mountains, and less than 10 degrees at Bachelor.
It is supposed to snow another 7-11 inches in the mountains tonight, with another 4-8 tomorrow. Forecast looks snowy and cold the rest of the week. Once these storms go past it should be epic for any kind of snow activity. The 10 day forecast does not show a real break any time soon. I think it is going to be hit or miss.
