(Oregon Coast) – From the southern Washington coast all the way down to the Coast Range of Oregon's south coast, winter weather advisories will be in effect for any elevation above 1500 feet from now through Tuesday in some areas. The National Weather Service (NWS) is expecting snow along Coast Range highways from the Willapa Hills down through Highway 199 that runs through southern Oregon, including Highway 126, Highway 26 and Highway 18.

The NWS issued winter weather advisories for the north Oregon coast and central Oregon coast from Sunday night through late Monday night, while the Southern Oregon Coast Range and Siskiyou mountains are a part of it through Tuesday night.

Above 1500 feet you can expect snow accumulations of four to eight inches along the north and central coast range, the NWS said.

“Slow down and use caution while traveling,” the NWS said.

Elevations above 1500 feet in Coos, Curry, and Douglas counties in southern Oregon will get hit with plenty of snow, but this likely won't translate to any issues between I-5 and the south coast, except Highway 199, which ends up in the northern California coast.

“Travel could be difficult due to slick, snow covered roads,” the NWS said. “The hazardous conditions are likely to impact holiday travel Sunday night into Monday as well as the Tuesday morning commute.”

Travel along the Oregon coast itself won't be affected, but some higher elevations in Eugene, Portland or southwest Washington will see some snow.

“Snow levels will gradually lower to around 1500 feet and fall to around 1000 feet by Monday morning, especially across southwest Washington,” the NWS said.

Three to five inches of snow could be accumulating in the Willapa Hills near the Washington coast. In Oregon, the Cascade foothills and the Oregon Coast Range could get four to six inches of snow, which is somewhat dangerous if you're driving on the way to the beaches.
