National Weather Service Portland (NWS) has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Central Oregon Coast for possible snow accumulation up to two inches overnight in the hills away from the immediate coast.
“Tonight going into Monday the snow level drops a bit to around 300 feet as we go into Monday morning,” NWS Meteorologist David Bishop said. “The snow level rises quickly back up to 1000 feet or so by Monday afternoon.”
The alert is for the Central Oregon Coast, including the cities of Lincoln City, Newport, Cape Foulweather, Yachats, and Florence.
A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Expect snow covered roads, limited visibility and use caution while driving.
“Keep an eye out and be aware what’s going on in your area,” Bishop said.
