Winter storm rolls in over eastern, central Oregon

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (AP) -

Weather forecasters say the Portland metro area will be drenched with rain thanks to a winter storm moving over the Cascade Range.

The National Weather Service says a chilly Monday morning will have a 70 percent chance of rain showers, mostly before 5 p.m. The likelihood of rain drops in the evening and some areas might be foggy after 11 p.m.

The weather service says the system is dumping snow on the Cascades, where people can expect up to a foot of snow by Monday night. The service says winds aren't strong enough for a blizzard warning, but there could be blizzard-like conditions.

The NWS also issued a winter weather advisory for much of the region just outside the central Oregon cities of Bend, Redmond, Madras and Prineville.
