SPOTS OF FREEZING DRIZZLE OR FLURRIES TONIGHT
1. Many of us will stay dry tonight through Thursday morning, thus in those areas no commuting issues Tuesday morning
2. The coast is pretty much done with frozen precipitation. Temps have warmed above freezing everywhere except where a light easterly flow is coming down the Columbia River. Even that will gradually warm tomorrow morning. Yes, still some icy streets around Astoria possible overnight.
3. Very spotty snow flurries, with a dusting or so, are possible at some point this evening through the Tuesday morning commute inland, mainly from Portland north.
4. A bigger issue is that areas of freezing drizzle or freezing rain showers could develop instead of or with flurries. That's because slightly warmer air is moving in around 2,000-3,000′ up. It only takes a few minutes of liquid drizzle or rain to coat a road and make it an ice rink; far more dangerous & destructive than a half-inch of snow.
