Tracking weather: What to expect for Thursday’s commute


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.
