A 1- to 2-degree temperature change this afternoon and Thursday night could be the difference between an inch of rain and up to 6 inches of snow, according to the National Weather Service in Portland.

Chances of snow, however, are relatively low at about 10 percent, said Daniel Hartsock, a meteorologist with the weather service.

Any snow is unlikely to linger, with temperatures expected to rise into the 40s every day, Hartsock said.

If it does snow, it will be the second time in a month. However, Hartsock doesn’t expect the snow to linger like it did in January when temperatures remained below freezing for many days after the initial snowfall.

“This is a very different situation,” Hartsock said.

Those who need shelter and housing assistance today can call the Council for the Homeless Housing Hotline at 360-695-9677. The hotline is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends and holidays.
