Bundle up tonight, it's going to get cold

FULL FORECAST | ROAD CAMERAS | POWER OUTAGES | CLOSURES

With overnight lows expected to drop into the low 30's or high 20's the next couple of nights, you might end up seeing a little bit of the white stuff on the ground.

Even at the coast.

A Special Weather Statement is still in effect from the NOAA.

Cold weather and precipitation are expected from the Coast Range to the Cascades starting Wednesday night, when tempuratures are expected to drop into the low 30's.

Snow accumilation is expected to be on the East side of the county and the Cascades, but a light dusting may make it's way to valley floors as soon as tonight, forecasters say.

With a Winter Storm Watch to the north, parts of Douglas County near the Lane County line may see some hazardous driving conditions.
