EUGENE, Ore. - A winter storm on the second day of spring could leave 7 to 10 inches of snow in the southern Willamette Valley by Wednesday night, with up to 15 inches in the hills above 700 feet, the National Weathe Service said.
The weather service said a winter storm warning remains in effect until 11 p.m. Wednesday for the southern Willamette Valley.
An earlier forecast Tuesday night expected the snow to turn to rain as Wednesday wore on.
Now, forecasters expect the snow level to hover at or near the valley floor throughout the day and into Wednesday night - with the possibility of more snow overnight.
Where rain falls on snow, the heavy slush could refreeze as temperatures fall.
