and central Columbia River gorge...

The National Weather Service in Portland has issued an Ice Storm
Warning below 2500 feet... which is in effect from 6 am Tuesday to
6 PM PST Wednesday.

* Timing... light freezing rain is expected to develop Tuesday
morning will then increase in the afternoon. Freezing rain will
become heavy at times Tuesday night and Wednesday. Temperatures
will be very slow to climb... and many locations may not climb
above freezing until Wednesday afternoon or evening.
Precipitation will taper to showers Wednesday night.

* Ice accumulation... ice accumulations of one half inch to one
inch expected to be fairly widespread. Some locations may exceed
one and a half of inches of ice from this storm.

* Impacts... this may be yet 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 only 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.
