Christmas travel will be an adventure for anyone heading over Oregon’s high mountain passes or to the Oregon Coast this year.
A series of storms are expected to bring anywhere from 12 to 24 inches of snow to Cascade Range passes between the Willamette Valley and Bend.
A flood warning is also in effect for the Central Oregon Coast, according to the National Weather Service in Portland.
It’s good news for skiers and snowboarders, who can enjoy every one of Oregon’s major ski areas being open holiday break.
But it could be a headache for anyone traveling over the mountains or to the coast.
