Snow levels are expected to be around 1000 feet tonight. However,
heavy precipitation rates may briefly bring the snow level to sea
level on the coast and in the Willamette Valley. Road temperatures
should remain warm enough to avoid becoming snow covered near sea
level, but slushy accumulation is possible, mainly above 500
feet. In addition, light accumulation on grassy surfaces is
possible even at sea level during the heaviest precipitation.
Temperatures will warm as the sun rises tomorrow with snow levels
rising above 1000 feet again by mid-morning Saturday.
