It’s 5pm on Thursday February 6, 2014. And if the snow is really going like this…you know the evening commute is going to be a mess!
Here’s the note I sent out to our KOIN News staff last night:
**Morning commute is likely just cold. Wind Chill of -5 degrees to +10 degrees. Evening commute may be in ‘Portland panic mode’ because it’s snowing and snow is
likely accumulating at that point.
It appears most of the metro area will get between 1-4” of accumulation by late Thursday evening. The actual number will be determined by how long the ‘snow zone’ is over us. Gorge is looking at 3-6″ of snow. Coast a dusting to 2″ or so–with some spots just getting some rain. Salem & Eugene and points between my see 1-6″ of snow.
Three other things to think about:
**Winter Storm – Entire I-5 Corridor, Vancouver to Eugene
**Blizzard – Columbia Gorge for possible blizzard conditions in the afternoon & evening
**Wind Advisory for metro area
That’s all for now. Stay warm!
