Many parts of central Oregon saw two feet of snow -- and we're not done.

 

National Weather Service Meteorologist Mary Wister says more precipitation is on the way.

 

"Things are starting to warm up, but the problem is we're going to get more moisture.  It will be snow in the higher elevations, but it's going to be wet and messy in these places that saw two feet of snow, mainly in the form of rain."

 

And all this snow and rain will help with our snowpack, but not as much as we need.

 

Before the storm, most places in Oregon were less than half of normal.  The Upper Deschutes Crooked Basin snowpack level near Bend was around 37 percent.
