...Chance of snow, freezing rain, or sleet over portions of eastern Washington and eastern Oregon tonight through Monday morning...

A weak warm front will travel east of the Cascades late this afternoon and tonight. Snow levels are not expected to rise significantly with the approaching system. Therefore, most of the mountains and higher valleys will observe snow overnight. However, warmer air will override cold air at the surface with a potential for light freezing rain or sleet. Winter weather advisories are in effect for some areas in eastern Washington and eastern Oregon that have the best potential for ice accumulations. Those areas not under a winter weather advisory will have a chance of a wintry mix of snow, sleet, or freezing rain...although accumulations will be minimal. If traveling tonight and Monday morning across eastern Washington and eastern Oregon, be prepared for winter driving conditions. Anticipate slick roads in most areas.
