...UNSEASONABLY COLD WEATHER TONIGHT...

The coldest air so far this winter season will be apparent
tonight as overnight lows drop to the lower to middle 20s along
the coast, and into the middle and upper teens for much of the
interior.

Temperatures across much of the region will drop below freezing
quickly between 5 pm and 8 pm, which will create issues for
motorists and pedestrians. Any snow covered or slushy spots will
freeze, turning those areas into icy sheets. Otherwise, any
moisture on the roadways and sidewalks will freeze, creating many
icy spots, especially on rural roadways. Looks can be deceiving,
as what may look to just wet road could easily be a stretch of
ice. As the sun sets, motorists should be prepared for such
conditions.

If going out for a walk overnight, or using public transportation,
ensure that you are dressed appropriately for the cold. Those
around Portland and Vancouver metro, and into the western Columbia
Gorge, will see breezy east winds into tonight, creating wind
chill of 10 to 20 degrees, and in the single digits at times
closer to the Columbia Gorge.

In addition, those with pets who often stay outdoors at night
should take care to ensure those animals have proper shelter
overnight.
