The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for the Coast Range of Northwest and Central Oregon and the Willapa Hills in Washington.

Sticking snow was expected down to 500 feet elevation as a cold, low-pressure system moves through the Pacific Northwest. Snow in some areas had been expected to accumulate to between two and four inches overnight, with another one to three inches expected during the day.

The winter weather advisory for snow means that periods of snow will cause travel difficulties. The Weather Service warns people to be prepared for snow-covered roads and limited visibility.

Jewell schools were closed today because of icy roads. However, scheduled parent-teacher conferences were expected to go ahead.

Astoria and Knappa and Clatskanie School districts ran two hours late and canceled morning kingergarten.

Law enforcement agencies reported two noninjury accidents on U.S. Highway 30 near Knappa during the morning commute.
