Portland forecast: Expect snow to stick around through weekend

Portland forecast: Expect snow to stick around through weekend
  1. Portland forecast: Expect snow to stick around through weekend
    More than 14 inches fell in Portland's West Hills overnight into Wednesday morning, and the the 6 1/2 inches of snow that fell by midnight at the weather service's office set a record for Jan. 10, breaking the 2 1/2 of…

The Portland area can expect another another 1 to 3 inches of snow by early Wednesday afternoon, adding to about the foot or so that has blanketed the area, the National Weather Service said in a mid-morning update.

And the accumulation isn't going anywhere fast -- the snow will be slow to melt as temperatures for the rest of the week peak at or near freezing levels.
"Any melting that does occur will refresh each night, so there will be icy conditions for a couple of days," according to the forecast. "Freezing fog is likely in the interior valleys late Thursday night into Friday morning with visibilities being reduced to a quarter of a mile at times."
The system that's brought the snow continues to move slowly to the southeast over Oregon and Washington. In the Portland area, a storm warning remains in effect until 1 p.m. Wednesday, with highs about 30 degrees and east winds up to 15 mph.
Temperatures could drop to 15 degrees overnight, then sunny skies and a high of about 30 degrees are expected Thursday. Partly cloudy skies with similar temperatures are forecast for Friday.
A new front approaches Friday night, and Saturday bringing in some warmer air that could increase surface temperatures. Forecasters expect highs of 35 on Saturday and climbing up to 40 on Sunday.
Andy Bryant, a hydrologist with the National Weather Service in Portland, says forecasters are concerned about flooding in northwest Oregon and southwest Washington early next week, as the slow snow melt combines with potential heavy rain beginning Tuesday.
The weekend system is a more typical winter system for the region, bringing rain drawing from tropical moisture, he said.
So how much snow fell Tuesday into Wednesday?
The heaviest amounts fell in the Portland and Vancouver areas with accumulations from 6 to 12 inches. The Columbia River Gorge also received 8 to 10 inches. For detailed snowfall totals, the weather service published a lengthy list of accumulations.

Here's a few of accumulations:

  20. Aging father’s prank has serious soul in ‘Toni Erdmann’

    01.19 / 18:45 sfgate.com
    In “Toni Erdmann,” a very good and peculiar comedy from Germany’s Maren Ade, a father subjects his high-strung adult daughter to a kind of unexpected — and clearly unwanted — shock therapy, using joke-shop fake teeth, a fright wig and a freakish sense of humor as tools of enlightenment. The aim is to raise her consciousness about the personal cost of her immersion in the corporate world. While the film gets lots of mileage from the comedy of embarrassment, it’s much more — more complex, a…
