Travelers headed over the Passes late Friday or Saturday will see winter driving conditions, be prepared to take extra travel time and winter provisions.

 

We also have a ton of moisture out there. That’s why we’ve seen Flood Warnings for the Siuslaw River near Mapleton in Lane County, and Flood Watches for the North Cascade Foothills, Coast Range, and North and Central Coastal areas. While some of these advisories are set to disappear early in the day, there will still be some minor flooding that is just below warning criteria.
