Portland dodges snow storm Monday; forecast calls for 'Brrrrr...'
People throughout the Portland metro area likely will see some snow or freezing rain this week, according to the National Weather Service.
"Snow is likely, more likely than not — it could be anywhere from a couple inches to six inches," said Andy Bryant, a hydrologist with the agency.
The metro area dodged the snow bullet Monday, Jan. 13, but forecasters say snow is much more likely to stick Tuesday night through Wednesday in Northwest Oregon at all elevations. Temperatures will be at or below freezing from Tuesday night through Thursday, with the potential of freezing rain.
The Oregon Department of Transportation is urging drivers to be safely situated at home ahead of snowfall. "It's critical before a storm to know what's coming, watch the forecast and know what's going on out there," said Don Hamilton with ODOT.
