PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- Winter's not over yet in Oregon.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 4 a.m. Saturday for a giant part of Oregon and southwest Washington up to Seattle.
What you'll see depends on where you are. At elevations under 500 feet, snow may only accumulate on the side of the road, on the grass or on the bushes. At 500 feet and above, anywhere from a trace to 3 inches could fall through Friday night.
Rain started at the coast in the middle of the day and slowly moved south, with snow flakes likely
In the mountains, anywhere between 1 and 3 feet of snow could fall, with winds gusting up to 70 mph. Combine those factors and there will likely be white out conditions in the mountains.
Temperatures will feel cold over the next few days, and then things change again at the end of the weekend.
Sunday night and Monday morning there is another chance of accumulating snow on the valley floor in time for the morning commute.
Stay with the KOIN 6 Weather Team for all the latest details.
It's been quite a week for both ODOT and PBOT, but the road crews handled things relatively well.
ODOT's Don Hamilton said this week has been both a successful case of road maintenance and a learning experience as crews used new tools at their disposal.
"We had the storm hitting at a good time of day, which was at the end of the day," Hamilton said. "People had a chance to get home in advance of the storm."
After no accum snow for the first 17 days of Feb, the snow has added up quick & PDX is now tied for the 5th snowiest Feb on record. PDX is also tied for the 11th longest streak of consecutive days of measurable snow. Rankings for both could go up if snow accums this eve. #ORwx pic.twitter.com/Z5ElNL4vbm— NWS Portland (@NWSPortland) February 23, 2018
Hamilton said they used salt "more this year than we have in the past, and that's proved pretty effective out there, so we're pretty pleased with the way that's gone."
Even though there was not overnight snow, ODOT kept crews out on the highways to prep for more inclement weather.
"All of our anti-icing routes have been treated," Hamilton said. "We applied more than 10,000 gallons of magnesium chloride" to the roads.
