...PATCHY LIGHT FREEZING RAIN POSSIBLE THIS MORNING...
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
