Cold & Snowy in the SW Washington Forecast

The National Weather Service just conducted their daily conference call with Emergency Managers throughout Oregon and SW Washington at 11:30 a.m. this morning. 

The current forecast, as of this writing around noon, is that areas north of Portland (particularly Clark County) could see 2-5 inches of snow down to the valley floor between 3p-10p this evening.

The red line in the slides to the right indicate the approximately line between snow and snow/rain mix in the Portland metro area.   

With a low pressure system moving southward, we also expect very cold temperatures in the 20s overnight which means that any moisture on the ground will freeze, resulting in impacts to tomorrow's morning commute. 

The remainder of the week will be cold, but no additional precipitation is forecasted beyond tonight.

Remember to dress warmly and drive safely as you encounter interesting weather over the next few days.
