Travel: Temperatures have fallen just below freezing near the west end of the Columbia River Gorge this morning, with colder temperatures eastward into the Gorge. Meanwhile, areas of light rain and drizzle are developing throughout the Portland-Vancouver metro area. This is resulting in localized areas of freezing rain, particularly along Highway 14 between Camas and Washougal and possibly near Corbett. Further east into the Gorge, light snow can be expected east of Rooster Rock and the Skamania County line. It does not take much snow or ice to make roads slippery. Be sure to allow extra time if you plan on driving through these areas this morning. Conditions should improve by mid-morning as precipitation decreases and temperatures slowly warm up.
For the rest of the weekend, a chance of icy patches or light snow cover on all Northwest Oregon highways (except the Coast) today, then mainly bare pavement and chilly temperatures through Sunday night. However, fog and spots of frost will be possible nights and mornings.
