  • ...ROADS REMAIN ICY THIS MORNING IN THE HOOD RIVER VALLEY AND
    CENTRAL COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE...
    As of 520 AM this morning, temperatures remain below freezing
    across much of the Hood River Valley and adjacent portions of the
    Columbia River Gorge. Occasional light freezing rain or drizzle
    have been reported this morning, adding to the ice that has
    already accumulated on the roads over the past few days.
    Occasional light rain and drizzle are expected to gradually
    increase across the area today. While temperatures are expected to
    slowly rise this morning, there is a chance that steadier
    precipitation could develop before temperatures can rise above
    freezing today. This could compound existing travel issues,
    especially during the morning commute.
    Travelers in the area should be prepared for icy roads and winter
    driving conditions this morning, in case temperatures are stubborn
    to rise above freezing. It will likely take some time for
    existing snow and ice to melt off area roads, even after
    temperatures warm above freezing. Temperatures are likely to rise
    above freezing for most of the Hood River Valley by this afternoon.
    The bulk of the rain associated with an incoming frontal system
    is likely to occur later this afternoon into this evening.
    Monitor the current road conditions by visiting tripcheck.com in
    Oregon, or wsdot.wa.gov in Washington. Also, the latest weather
    conditions, forecasts, and advisories can always be found at
