Watches & Warnings

Ice Storm Warning
Issued: 9:59 AM PST Jan. 17, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Ice Storm Warning remains in effect for the greater Portland
Metro area and the Greater Vancouver area until 10 PM PST this
evening...

An Ice Storm Warning remains in effect until 10 PM PST this
evening.

* Timing... occasional light freezing rain is expected through the
early afternoon... then expect heavier precipitation to spread
into the area in the latter half of the afternoon and into
tonight. The heavier precipitation will likely fall as freezing
rain over much of the Metro area this evening.

* Temperatures... .generally from 25 to 30 this morning.
Temperatures over the western Metro area including downtown are
expected to rise above freezing late in the afternoon. Areas
over the eastern part of the Metro area... from the Airport area
eastward... will remain near or just below freezing through the
evening before warming above freezing late tonight. Over the far
east Metro area near Troutdale and Washougal it is possible that
temperatures will not warm above freezing until late tonight or
early Wednesday morning.

* Ice accumulations... ranging from as little as a tenth to a
quarter of an inch in the west Metro area... to a quarter to a
half of an inch across much of the eastern Metro area. Heaviest
accumulations are likely near the mouth of The Gorge around
Troutdale and Washougal where up to an inch of ice is possible.

* Impacts... ice accumulation on trees and power lines may result
in downed branches and lines... which would bring the threat of
power outages this afternoon into tonight. Icing will make
travel treacherous on untreated roads and walkways.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

An Ice Storm Warning means severe winter weather conditions are
expected or occurring. Significant amounts of ice accumulations
will make travel dangerous or impossible. Travel is strongly
discouraged. Commerce will likely be severely impacted. If you
must travel... keep an extra flashlight... food... and water in your
vehicle in case of an emergency. Ice accumulations and winds will
likely lead to snapped power lines and falling tree branches that
add to the danger.





Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 10:03 AM PST Jan. 17, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch remains in effect through late Wednesday night for
parts of northwest Oregon and southwest Washington...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of northwest Oregon and southwest Washington...
including the following areas... in northwest Oregon... Coast
Range of northwest Oregon... greater Portland Metro area...
lower Columbia and north Oregon coast. In southwest
Washington... Greater Vancouver area... I-5 corridor in Cowlitz
County... South Washington Cascade foothills... South Washington
coast and Willapa Hills.

* Through late Wednesday night

* with dramatically rising snow levels Tuesday and the onset of
heavy rain Tuesday night... expect moderate to sharp rises on
rivers and creeks draining the Coast Range... Willapa Hills...
and South Washington Cascades. At this point... any river
flooding that occurs is expected to have minor impacts. The
heavy rain will likely cause urban flooding in the Portland/
Vancouver Metro area as the rain will help melt the existing
snow and ice. Blocked storm drains may also contribute to
ponding of water on streets.

* Rainfall amounts through Thursday... 1 to 2 inches Portland/
Vancouver Metro area... 3 to 6 inches north Coast Range/Willapa
Hills... and 3 to 6 inches South Washington Cascades foothills.

* Rivers and creeks of greatest concern include Johnson Creek in
southeast Portland... the Nehalem in Clatsop and Tillamook
County... and the Grays in Wahkiakum County. However... all of
these are currently forecast to crest just below flood stage.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Landslides and debris flows are possible during this flood event.
People... structures and roads located below steep slopes... in
canyons and near the mouths of canyons may be at serious risk
from rapidly moving landslides.
