A Special Weather Statement has been issued by the National Weather Service for low-elevation snow. Showers are likely across Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington from this afternoon into Monday night. As cold air moves in from the north, snow levels will lower Sunday afternoon through Monday.

The best chances for accumulating snow will be in the Coast Range, Willapa Hills, and Cascade Foothills Sunday night and Monday, where accumulations are expected to range anywhere from 2 to 7 inches, with the heaviest amounts likely above 1,000 feet. At the coast and in the inland valleys, sticking snow will be harder to come by. One to 3 inches are possible, but this will be mainly above 500 feet, and during the day Monday. In the central and western Columbia River Gorge and in the Hood River Valley, 1 to 3 inches of snow can be expected, primarily Monday and Monday night.

As the snow showers decrease Monday afternoon and Monday night, some of the coldest air yet of the winter will move in. Expect lows by Tuesday morning to drop into the 20s in most low elevation locations, with teens locally possible in areas that receive a little snow cover. Cold temperatures and residual moisture could lead to icy roads Monday night and Tuesday morning.
