Oregon Coast mountains snow

National Weather Service Portland (NWS) issued a “winter weather advisory” for the Central Coast Range passes Friday night into Saturday with the possibility of snow accumulation of 2-5 inches.

NWS warns drivers to be prepared for slippery conditions up until midnight Saturday in the passes, including the Van Duzer Corridor, which peaks at 760 feet. ODOT has declared the summit a “snow zone” and requires drivers to “carry chains or traction tires regardless of conditions.”

Additionally, NWS said to expect colder temperatures Saturday through Sunday as breezy east winds will create a wind chill of 15-25 degrees Saturday night into Sunday morning with temperatures in the lower and mid-20s.
