Forecast calls for snow to return Monday night

1 to 3 inches of snow could fall by Tuesday afternoon

Just when the snow and ice was finally beginning to melt, forecasters with the National Weather Service are now predicting more snow.

The Portland office this morning issued a winter weather advisory stating that a mix of rain and snow will hit the Greater Vancouver area this evening, and change to just snow after 11 p.m., continuing until noon on Tuesday.

An accumulation of 1 to 3 inches of snow is expected, depending on elevation.

“Additional snow and existing ice accumulations will continue slippery roads and walking paths, and possibly result in falling tree branches,” the advisory states.

Classes in Camas and Washougal were canceled on Monday, due to inclement weather conditions.
