(Portland, Oregon) – What does the snow have in store for northwest Oregon? Apparently quite a bit. (Above: Cannon Beach under four inches of snow, courtesy Haystack Rock Awareness Program).

Still more of it to come, but mostly there’s almost a certainty of black ice on the roads tonight for Portland, the inland valley, the Coast Range highways and even the Oregon coast roads around Highway 101. Mostly, this spells issues overnight, however, and perhaps a little into the morning.

Roads that are still wet in the evening will likely freeze over.

The National Weather Service (NWS) in Portland issued a special weather statement for the northwest portion of the state:

“Temperatures will fall below freezing shortly after sunset for most areas across the region this evening,” the NWS said. “Any moisture left on untreated surfaces will likely refreeze tonight making for treacherous driving and walking conditions. Temperatures will remain below freezing through Tuesday`s morning commute. Additionally for the I-5 corridor mainly north of Albany, very light snow may accumulate primarily during the evening commute hours. Snow amounts will most likely be 1 inch or less, however, the commute timing could be especially problematic.”

Along the Oregon coast, there is still a slight chance of snow showers tonight, and the low will be a chilly 28. This means ice is quite possible on the roads around the beach towns. Tuesday and Wednesday will be sunny and around 40 for a high, but nighttime lows will be below 30 degrees, which brings another chance of snow to the beaches on Wednesday night.

It’s rain for the next few days, but the NWS is showing the possibility of more snow on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

The Oregon Coast Range will be more problematic, especially if black ice hits those roads. It’s best to stick to daytime driving along the routes to and from the beaches. Snow is likely through Monday on those roads, and black ice is again a concern after dark as overnight lows dip into the 20s.

“Snow levels later this week look to initially be around 1000 ft, but could lower to below 500 ft over the weekend,” the NWS said. “This could bring another threat of low elevation snow, similar to what happened today, but this will all depend on how much cold air filters down into our forecast area. Will continue to monitor the forecast over the coming days, but in general expect somewhat seasonable weather through early next week.”
