By Rod Hill on 2020-01-17
WINTER ADVISORY THROUGH 10:00 AM FOR THE VALLEY. SCATTERED MIX OF SHOWERS FROM THE SOUTH MOVING NORTHEAST WITH EARLY TEMPS NEAR 32 DEGREES ACROSS THE REGION. ICY ROADS ARE EXPECTED DUE TO THE TEMPERATURE AND A SNOW MIX OF PASSING SHOWERS.
Winds are calm this morning with fog being reported. The forecast is on track for this morning to be Portland’s
final chance of the week to see flurries to a dusting of snow. Moisture will be scattered, but Clackamas county
may be the best bet for 1-2” of snow in the hills through mid-morning.
During the day, rain showers will increase later this afternoon as snow levels rise to 2,000 feet, ending the threat of low snow levels for the week. Wind will be southeast to 15 mph. with valley high temps in the low 40s and mid 40s at the coast. This evening, a push of steady rain will continue through the night as a low pressure center nears the coast. Overnight temps will hold steady near 40 degrees with breezy southeast winds 10-25 mph. Total rainfall through morning up to .50 inches.
Saturday sees early rain break into showers as snow levels rise to 4,000 feet.
Possible near freezing temps Sunday morning if clouds break. The next period of likely rain arrives Monday night.
