(Oregon Coast) – Forecast models are now showing a definite but short dusting of snow for the Oregon Coast Range, the Portland metro area and even some small amounts on the beaches. All of it is coming tonight (Sunday) and into early morning, but there will be a pattern of after-dark snow dustings through much of the week.

The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a winter weather advisory for the valley portions of the state, the coast range and even the Oregon coast beaches.

“Snow levels will drop very close to sea level, but main snow accumulations will be away from the immediate coast and over the hills,” the NWS said. “Total snow accumulations of up to two inches expected.”

Late Sunday, the beaches of the Oregon coast could start to see some minor white bits. The NWS said accumulation of less than a half inch is possible from late Sunday through early Monday morning. Highs only reach to 38 or so during the day. That night may see a few dustings, and that similar pattern of late night / early morning light snow is possible until Friday, even though the latter part of the week will be partly sunny to mostly sunny.

“Plan on slippery road conditions later tonight into Monday morning,” the NWS said.

Snow in the passes to and from the beaches may be more problematic, however, although even there a tiny amount of snow is possible. It’s early morning ice that may cause traffic hazards.

For the coast range, it’s the similar pattern of overnight dustings, however on and off. Monday night’s predictions by the NWS contain only rain, while Tuesday through Friday show overnight lows in the 20s and some possible snow on occasion.

As of 4 p.m. on Sunday, there are only traces by the sides of the highways along some coastal passes, including Highway 6.

Expect limited visibilities and use caution while driving, the NWS said.

For the Portland metro area, where Portlanders have become cynical and snarky about snow predictions, only Monday’s overnight and early morning hours contain any predictions. Under half an of accumulation is possible, which likely translates to anything that falls will melt quickly. Some commuting issues in the early morning because of ice may be possible.

Aside from that, the rest of the week looks rainy and then turning to sunny later for places around Portland, including the Willamette Valley. See Oregon Coast Traffic Conditions - See Oregon Coast Weather.
