The National Weather Service tells us there’s up to an inch of accumulation, and it’s only supposed to get colder. This means that tomorrow will likely bring frozen roads, and thus treacherous conditions. Here’s what you should know:

FlashAlert – Many Portland-area schools, businesses, and other organizations post inclement weather alerts to FlashAlert. This is where television news stations get their info on closures.
TriMet service alerts – Although all routes are still running, several bus and train routes are on alternate routes or alternate schedules. LIFT vehicles are no longer operating.
NOAA National Weather Service – Get the latest forecast and current conditions, and check for weather alerts and warnings.

    As of 2:50 PM on Wednesday afternoon it has commenced snowing again here in western Clark County (elevation 3,000 ft) in Las Vegas, NV. We were hit pretty hard on Monday with 8 solid hours of snow, equaling between 3 and 5 inches throughout our neighborhood in Summerlin. Weird weather.
