PORTLAND, Oregon - The snow expected today didn't quite come off as some had hoped. However, it's still in the forecast for tomorrow. The snow should fall heavily at times and stick in low valley levels, which means just about everywhere.

The snow should begin late tonight, and continue until about 10 p.m. and then, as heavy cold air from the north flows into the valley, heavy snow is expected midnight tonight.

Cold weather will continue into the weekend, low temperature for Friday and Saturday of around 20 degrees. Ice may cause problems for drivers. The highest temperature Friday should be around 34 and 37 on Saturday.

TriMet chained its buses on lines 18, 51, and 63 TriMet plans to chain the entire fleet for Thursday morning it will likely remain that way into Friday.

"I urge Portlanders to be ready for tomorrow's weather, to have a plan that includes an alternate way home, an emergency kit and chains in your vehicle, a full tank of gas, proper tire maintenance, and transit schedules for your routes to and from work," Sam Adams said. "If you're driving in the hills or other chain zones, be ready to pull over and put chains on."
