Portland, Ore. — The National Weather Service Sunday issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Greater Portland Metro Area.
The Advisory is in effect from 2:00 A.M. Monday morning until Noon on Monday.

Seaside tells FM New 101 KXL, “It’s stopped snowing but we have about 3 inches on the ground. It’s Beautiful and pretty uncommon for the coast.” Another round of winter weather could hit the
Portland Metro area Thursday or Friday.
