At 1110 PM, a line of showers was moving through the Willamette
Valley and producing wind gusts in the 30 to 40 mph range at
Hillsboro, Portland airport, Aurora, and McMinnville. At the same
time a line of showers and isolated thunderstorms was moving
onshore along the north and central Oregon coasts and into the
coast range. In addition, these features have dropped the snow
level below 1000 feet, with a report of snow near Corvallis and
and Oregon Department of Transportation cameras in the coast range
showing snow covering the roadways at Lees Camp and the Sunset
Rest area along Highway 26. This unsettled weather will likely
continue at times through tonight so use caution if you are out
and about.
