The Highway 34 bypass is also closed; use an alternate route, like 99W, to get from Corvallis to I-5. A Flood Warning is in effect for the Willamette River from north of Eugene to north of Albany; though this may not directly affect travel on I-5, feeder highways may see some high water. The Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for the Cascades through 6:00pm this evening for snow accumulations of 3 to 8 inches expected between 3,500 and 5,000 feet including the highway passes. However, 8 to 16 inches are likely for elevations above 5,000 feet. West to southwest winds of 15 to 25 mph will also continue today. Travel could be very difficult.
