The National Weather Service Portland has issued a special weather statement for the Central Oregon Coast advising possible snow tonight through Monday and icy road conditions Tuesday morning.
Snow is possible down to the lowest elevations and light accumulations may occur.
A cold air mass will move into the region tonight and Monday allowing snow levels to drop below 500 feet. Additional rounds of showers bring a chance for rain and snow to mix along the coast under the heaviest showers.
Showers are expected to decrease late Monday as the system moves out of the area, but cold temperatures could stick around Monday night. This could cause residual moisture to refreeze and produce icy road conditions for Tuesday morning.
Commuters should monitor road conditions and be prepared for slippery conditions, especially across elevated surfaces, such as bridges and overpasses, and less traveled roads.
Cities included in the warning: Astoria, Cannon Beach, Tillamook, Netarts, Pacific City, Lincoln City, Newport, Cape Foulweather, Yachats, Florence, Raymond, Long Beach, Ocean Park, Naselle, Cathlamet and Cape Disappointment.
This special weather statement has also been issued for the North Oregon Coast and South Washington Coast.
