Watches & Warnings

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

... Ice Storm Warning remains in effect for the Upper Hood River
Valley... the western Columbia River gorge... and the central
Columbia River gorge until 6 PM PST Wednesday...

An Ice Storm Warning remains in effect until 6 PM PST Wednesday.

* Timing... occasional light precipitation through early afternoon.
Late today and tonight precipitation will increase and become
heavy at times.

* Ice accumulation... less than a tenth of an inch of accumulation
through early this afternoon. As precipitation increases later
today and tonight... expect heavy icing. Ice accumulations of a
half inch to one inch are expected to be widespread tonight and
Wednesday. Some locations may exceed one and a half of inches of
ice from this storm.

* Impacts... this is expected to be another major ice storm for the
western and central Columbia Gorge and surrounding valleys.
Heavy ice accumulation will likely bring down some large
branches and power lines. Power outages may last multiple days
depending on how widespread these impacts are. This event will add
to the existing heavy snow and ice loading on rooftops... which
may cause some rooftops to fail.

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.
