The connection between Canadian and Carolinian storm systems developed as projected last night, and remains delicately in place this morning. Light snow is being reported mainly north and east of Portland, as well as in the mountains. Snow outside of the mountains will be quickly drying up later this morning as the Canadian disturbance races off to the east. Sunshine will then develop downwind of the mountains this afternoon, with upsloping continuing in the higher terrain. High temps will range from 15 in the north to 30 in the south.
