Snow showers move through the region

PORTLAND, Ore. - Cold, wet air moving into western Oregon and Washington is bringing a dusting of snow to the region this weekend.

The flurries could last through Monday, leaving sporadic accumulations as low as sea level.

KATU Meteorologist Dave Salesky says most areas should feel cold temperatures below 32 degrees Sunday night, leading to a cold start to Monday.

More snow could fall at lower elevations Monday night, Salesky said.

Some areas of the Willamette Valley floor and the Seattle metro area could get an inch of snow, even more on hilltops.

Several inches are expected in the Coast and Olympic ranges, and upwards of a foot is predicted in the Cascades.

Transportation officials urge drivers to be prepared for snowy roads, limited visibility and black ice.
