Weather Alert Detail

  • Special Weather Statement for Cascade Foothills in Lane County County, Oregon
  • Special Weather Statement issued December 15 at 3:36AM PST by NWS
  • Effective: Thursday, December 14, 2017 at 12:55 p.m.
  • Expires: Friday, December 15, 2017 at 11 a.m.
    A front offshore will push increasing rain into the region later
    this morning. At 3 am, temperatures in many lowland areas were in
    the upper 20s to lower 30s. Temperatures will rise this morning.
    But, there is a chance that temperatures may not warm above
    freezing before the rain begins. This would result in patchy
    light freezing rain. Since rainfall will be light, little if any
    ice accumulation is expected.
    Threat of the freezing rain will be 5 am and 8 am for valleys in
    the Coast Range and Willapa Hills, and from 8 to 10 am for the
    Willamette Valley and Clark County.
    Again, most areas will not see the freezing rain, as will be
    quite patchy and short-lived.
    Threat of patchy freezing rain may last until 1 pm for valleys in
    the south Washington Cascades, far north Oregon Cascades and Upper
    Hood River Valley.
    Motorist driving about this morning should be prepared for locally
    icy conditions.
