While none of it is predicted to become the snowpacalypse of last month, it has caused the National Weather Service (NWS) to put a whole chunk of northern Oregon and southern Washington under a winter weather advisory, including the metro area and the Coast Range / Willapa Hills. That is in effect through Thursday evening.

“Wet snow is expected for the northern Oregon to south Washington Cascade foothills, Coast Range mountains of Northwest Oregon, and the Willapa Hills,” the NWS said. “Around 2 to 6 inches of snow is expected, except up to 10 to 12 inches above 2000 ft north of HWY 26.”

Wet snow is possible later tonight north of Wilsonville, the NWS said, while the best chances for accumulating snow are east of I-205 and above 500 feet in the Oregon Coast Range. For Portland, the advisory entails more wet snow than anything else, with accumulations of up to one inch, but also wind gusts kicking in as high as 40 mph.

“Plan on slippery road conditions,” the NWS said. “The hazardous conditions could impact the morning commute.”

The Columbia Gorge is looking at 4 to 8 inches of snow.

For the Oregon Coast Range and Willapa Hills to the Washington coast, the NWS said to expect slippery conditions. The affected areas go as far south as Highway 18 and the Van Duzer Corridor and include Highway 6 and 26, but routes to Newport, Florence and on the south Oregon coast will not be in the snow zone.
