Storm, cold snap expected after holiday weekend




PORTLAND — Thanksgiving weekend in Oregon is expected to end with a storm followed by a cold snap.

Forecasters at the National Weather Service say rain and wind are expected to move into the Pacific Northwest on Sunday, with heavy rains on the coast and at higher elevations.

As a cold front moves through, snow levels are expected to fall Sunday night, so that means travelers will see snow in mountain passes.

The weather service says arctic air is expected to move into southwest Washington and Northwest Oregon by Monday evening, bringing snow levels near the floor of the Willamette Valley.

Much colder temperatures are expected next week across the state.
