Winter hit the Cascade Range in a big way this past weekend. The Pacific Northwest is enduring a freight train of at least three significant storms coming in from the Pacific. Lots and lots of rain in the lower elevation with snow at higher elevations. Don't expect any views this week.
Today's weather forecast calls for snow at Mount St. Helens. Current views of the volcano are obscured by clouds. The calendar says it's October. Winter in the Cascade Range is around the corner.
