LONG BEACH - A winter storm warning remains in effect until 10 p.m. Thursday for the south Washington and north Oregon coast, along with much of the rest of the Pacific Northwest.
Snow level will descend to sea level between 7 and 10 p.m. Thursday, according to the National Weather Service in Portland.
Snow accumulations of 1 to 2 inches are forecast overnight Thursday, with another 1 to 2 inches during the day Thursday for the lowlands and the coast. Total snow accumulations of 3 to 7 inches are possible, mainly in the higher hills.
Roadways may become icy and snow covered, resulting in slick driving conditions. This may significantly impact travel Thursday morning.
It is expected to remain cold, with a low of 23 degrees overnight between Thursday and Friday.
A winter storm warning for heavy snow means severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring. Significant amounts of snow are forecast that will make travel dangerous.
