Freezing rain possible overnight in Camas-Washougal

Central Columbia River Gorge could see more freezing ice Saturday night, Sunday morning

The National Weather Service (NWS) says parts of Southwest Washington and Northwest Oregon, including the Camas-Washougal area, could see light freezing rain tonight through early Saturday morning

The NWS issued a “special weather statement” Friday afternoon, and said cool air would remain in place “across much of the Pacific Northwest Friday as a weak frontal system approached the coast.”

Temperatures are expected to be just below freezing for much of the night Friday and light precipitation could hit the area overnight and into Saturday morning.

“The combination of near-freezing temperatures and precipitation may result in some spots of light ice accumulation later tonight and early Saturday morning,” according to the NWS.

The NWS reminds Clark County residents that it “only takes a small amount of freezing rain to make roads slick and difficult for travel.”

The central Columbia River Gorge could see more substantial winter weather and freezing ice late Saturday night and into Sunday morning.
