Storm Brings Freezing Temperatures, Coats Portland Metro With Snow

PORTLAND, Ore. — 1-2″ of new snow fell overnight Monday into Tuesday across much of the Portland, Vancouver area and south to Salem.  The chance for further accumulation has ended for now.

There are no weather advisories for the metro area in effect as of Tuesday afternoon, but the National Weather Service is warning of freezing temperatures for most of this week.

Overnight lows for most lower elevations will remain in the 20’s with a few locations dipping into the teens tonight and Wednesday night.  Afternoon highs will barely hit the lower 30’s, if at all through Wednesday.

Our news partner KGW reports it will be dry and cold tonight; Wednesday looks dry and partly cloudy.

Partial clearing before sunrise is expected to lead to some valley locations dipping to near 20 degrees.  East winds begin blowing out of the gorge this afternoon and will continue blowing into east county tomorrow.

Another weather system arrives Thursday morning with accumulating snow possibly transitioning into a wet mix during the afternoon.  Significant snow and an icy mix are possible.
