Heavy snow in Oregon’s mountain passes is affecting spring break travel

Heavy snow on Oregon mountain roads could affect those returning from spring break, according to the National Weather Service in Portland.

NWS meteorologist David Bishop said he’s counting on 1 to 2 feet of snow in places like Santiam Pass (Highway 20), Willamette Pass (Highway 58) and the Government Camp area (Highway 26).

“It’s possible that travel could have an impact,” Bishop said.

Mountain roads look mostly good now through Friday, with only light winds, but that will change dramatically Friday evening.
