Freezing rain, sleet and snow has moved into the Salem area and is moving into the North Willamette Valley as predicted. It is making travel hazardous, creating very slick roadways – especially on Interstate 5. There are numerous crashes and vehicles spinning out of control on I-5 and other roads. Travelers should be advised that there could be a layer of ice under the snow that is falling. However, the best plan is to not drive, and wait until temperatures rise and conditions improve.
