PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Some residents around the Portland metro awoke to some winter weather Monday morning and as a result, some school districts in higher elevations are running on delayed schedules or snow routes. 

Weather experts said snow levels were expected to fall to 1,000 feet. About one to three inches of snow could fall around that elevation. A winter weather advisory is in effect until 1 p.m. Monday. 

A small dusting of snow was reported by FOX 12 viewers in the West Hills, Forest Grove, Vernonia, Camas and other areas. 

In the lowest elevations, commuters can mostly expect wet roads for the morning drive to work.

Colton School District is delayed three hours because of weather. North Schools in the Battle Ground School District are running two and a half hours late, including Battle Ground High School, Tukes Valley Primary and Middle, Amboy Middle, Yacolt Primary and Summit View High School. The Newberg, Kelso, and Longview school districts are currently running bus snow routes.  

Jewell School District in Clatsop County is closed due to weather.
