Authorities keep close watch on southern Oregon’s large numbers of bears this fall
Bears were spotted in Oregon’s eastern mountains after the snowpack reached a record low of 7 percent on Saturday, the second consecutiv성남출장마사지e spring with low snow levels.
The last time an annual low-level freeze reached this much in the state was in 1993, with some 40,000 to 50,000 bears having died due to cold temperatures in the winter.
An annual average winter-low snowfall of one to two inches may be unusual in most parts of the state, but more than 50 of Oregon’s mountain lakes have seen less than one-eighth of an inch of snow this year.
The snow totals in southern Oregon are a major feather in the cap of a weather system that c카지노ontinues to move across much of the state.
An area of much of western Oregon is expected to see more rain than average to help melt winter snow on Friday in the snowpack.
Snow accumulations on Mt. Hood, which could become one of the three major snow events on U.S. soil, could increase this weekend.
“You can expect snow to start at high elevations to start melting from the lower to the lower elevations of the mountain from this storm system,” said Paul Sood, a research meteorologist for the National Weather Service.
Bears and other wildlife will still remain vulnerable to the impacts of snowfalls and heat waves as it continues to move eastward.
An area of the state of northern California also remains vulnerable to impacts of high temperatures and snowfall in winter as a polar vortex over Southern California wraps around the West coast.
A winter-low low-level cloud with high pressure over California will be over the West Coast Thursday, forcing a series of severe weather conditions from mid-Thursday through Monday.
Polar vortex over northern Europe will move west again on Saturday, making for a combination of snow and rain.

The jet stream, the area of air where winds carry cold air across the continents, will continue to move north Sunday and into Monday to counter the cold conditions.
