PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — As you head out the door Thursday morning, you may see some snow flurries mixed with rain during your commute, but not enough to have a significant impact.
Portland saw some rain early in the morning, however, light snow was coming down on neighborhoods above 500 feet. That snow is unlikely to stick as temperatures will stay above freezing throughout the day.
ODOT crews were out before the sun putting deicer on roads in the West Hills in case things take a turn for the worse.
While snow will likely not cause any issues, drivers should be prepared for wet roads and low visibility due to fog.
Majority of the snow showers will turn into rain by early afternoon for the metro area.
If you’re looking for snow, more is expected toward the Gorge near Odell.
Scattered showers around this morning. Reports of light snow/rain mix in the west hills, rain in the PDX metro, snow out towards the gorge near Odell, and heavy, hail-producing rain cells near Lincoln City this morning. @KOINNews pic.twitter.com/Etzvh7R1zj— Kelley Bayern (@KelleyKOIN) March 7, 2019
Fortunately, better weather is ahead!
The weekend is supposed to be sunny and 50 degrees, which is a lot warmer than Wednesday’s daytime high of 35 degrees.
