…SNOW SHOWERS POSSIBLE IN LOWLAND AREAS LATE TONIGHT THROUGH

THURSDAY MORNING…

An area of showers off the central coast of Oregon this afternoon

is expected to move inland late tonight. The favored area for

these showers will be north and west of a Newport to Salem line.

Although the showers will be scattered in nature, there is the

potential for a quick inch or so of snow, even along the coast

north of Newport. This would still be enough to cause slick roads,

even during the morning commute. Roadways that are wet this

evening will likely freeze tonight as temperatures lower into the

middle 20s to lower 30s.

Visibility may suddenly lower due to the randomness of these

showers. Slow down and allow extra time to reach your destination

if driving during the overnight hours or Thursday morning.

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.
