Oregon Coast, Portland: Snow, Ice, Rain Updates
(Portland, Oregon) – The latest ice, storm and snow updates for Portland, the Oregon coast range and the Oregon coast.
In Short: Roads in Portland will worsen until later tonight as more sleet and freezing rain pile up on the previous layers of snow. Sunday, things will start to warm up in the afternoon, but more freezing rain is in store through much of the day, but forecasters say there is a good chance of warmer rain later. So this is unclear how much relief it will bring to the roads. Still a winter storm warning for Portland until 10 pm Sunday night.
North Oregon coast and the north coast range are under a winter weather warning until later tonight. Freezing rain will continue there until tomorrow (Sunday), when temps will warm up into the 30's. Central Oregon coast is experiencing no issues. Follow the Oregon Coast Beach Connection FB page for up-to-minute updates – www.facebook.com/OregonCoastConnection.
For Portland, the NWS said more freezing rain through 4 a.m. is likely, including sizable accumulations of ice.
Sunday afternoon, conditions will change to some freezing rain but gradually warming up to a high near 36. Another round of ice will ontinue to form throughout the day and evening, but this could also mean some easing of road issues if the snow begins to melt and soften. Sunday night turns to regular rain, and temps in the 40's will return by Monday.
For the north Oregon coast, in towns like Seaside, Cannon Beach, Manzanita, Tillamook or Pacific City, freezing rain will return until later on Sunday.
Travel through the coast range is difficult and will remain so, with ODOT saying you should have chains to go through the passes to and from the coast. As much as seven inches of new snow is expected on the summits overnight. These problems look to ease some over the course of Sunday and certainly by Monday.
The central Oregon coast is no longer experiencing any issues.
