Another Winter Storm Strikes Parts of Oregon
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Another winter storm threatens to disrupt traffic in parts of Oregon in time for the holiday travel rush.
Blizzard-like conditions closed Interstate 84 in Eastern Oregon between Baker City and Pendleton early Friday.
A winter weather advisory is in effect for most of the eastern and central parts of the state through 10 p.m. Pacific.
Storms are expected to bring up to a foot of snow to the Cascade Mountain passes, with the heaviest accumulations in Lane County.
Another 1 to 2 inches was forecast for the Columbia River Gorge.
Central Oregon is expecting another 2 to 3 inches of snow after getting walloped earlier this month with near-record snowfall.
The Willamette Valley -- including the heavily traveled Interstate 5 corridor -- will remain clear.
