Portland, Ore. — (Update 3:35am) – The National Weather Service in Portland has downgraded the latest Winter Weather Advisory now to a Special Weather Statement.
Ares of light snow this morning will result in accumulations
generally of an inch or less for low elevations across much of
northwest Oregon and southwest Washington.
Although any accumulations will be light, it will still be enough
to cause slick roads and dangerous driving conditions through the
morning commute. Be careful. Slow down and give yourself extra
time to reach your destination.
There’s still a chance for light snow this morning across much of nw OR and sw WA, but for most areas at low elevations, any accumulations will be under an inch. Down around Eugene (where else), you stand a better chance of seeing another inch of snow this morning.
