Freezing precipitation possible during AM commute, followed by on-and-off rain

A fine Friday to you, Central Oregon! Snow may develop before sunrise, with freezing rain also possible during your morning commute, which could create an icy glaze over roads, sidewalks, and vehicles early, before warmer temperatures and expected rain arrive by later today. On and off rain is expected to be with us through the weekend, when a drier pattern begins to take hold.

A winter weather advisory is in effect until noon in Central and North Central Oregon and much of the sA winter weather advisory is in effect until noon in portions of Central and North Central Oregon, along the east slopes of the Cascades due to expected mixed precipitation with additional snow accumulations of up to one inch and ice accumulations ranging from trace to around one tenth of an inch.  Plan on slippery road conditions.

Due to a warm front bringing some widespread rain to the coast warm air mixing into our area will cause snow levels to rise quickly to around 8500 feet along the OR Cascades. As a result not much snow, if any is expected in this current bout of precipitation. Snow levels don’t appear to begin to lower significantly again until the middle of next week.

Winds are expected to be much like yesterday, in the 5-15mph range with some areas seeing windspeed closer to 20mph. Highs today will be cooler by a few degrees but still in the 40s and overnight lows will be significantly warmer (and above average) in the 30s and 40s.
