Icy & Dicey tonight in the Columbia River Gorge.
A cold front is moving into Oregon and S.W. Washington tonight. Precipitation will be rain in most areas, the exception will be the gorge. An Ice Storm Warning is in effect until mid-morning Wednesday. From 7pm -10pm freezing rain and snow will begin to fall east of Corbett. ODOT has already warned they will likely close I-84 down later tonight.
From Troutdale west precipitation will be liquid and temperatures will actually rise a couple of degrees overnight. Rain will taper off into showers by Wednesday morning. Again the exception will be in the gorge where freezing rain will continue to fall.
The milder air will push high temperatures into the upper 40s and low 50s. Any break from the rain will be brief. Another wet and windy storm arrives late Wednesday night. The wet and mild pattern will continue through the weekend.
Tonight's low 37
Wednesday's high 51
