Break: Winter slam Into Oregon.

Winter weather WARNING


so as the weather goes you know what happens when we have bad weather it creates inclement weather conditions for much of the Lane County area including school closures which all schools apparently in Lane County are closed officially as of last night and there are no delays or anyting expected for tomorrow morning.

as of Tuesday at 6 p.m. snow level of 500 feet to the valley floor could expect 2 to 5 inches of snow but updated at 11 on news you could expect 6 in of snow at maximum.

Lane Transit district LTD as Bella known is operating on a Sunday snow schedule so many of the Lane Transit drivers may not be working a regular schedule but in any event stay tuned to your local news weather and emergency weather alert system radio if you have one or check out keys yet kval came to your or newstalk 11:20 or kpnw 590.

elevations above 500 ft to 1000 could expect anywhere from 8 to 10 in of snow Cascade Foothills and everything above 1000 feet could get anywhere from 9 to 12 in of snow overnight.

So here’s how it all breaks down for closures and delays.

Public School announcements there will be no school and it will be called a snow day Junction City Eugene 4J and all schools around Lane County have been canceled as of last night on the 11:00 news on Tuesday the 26th of February this is officially the latest announcement.

there it will be limited bus schedule for public transit anybody that has to go somewhere please remember that Junction City bus may not operate 95 to Junction City may not be operational and all of the buses surrounding Lane County out of the Lane Transit district you may not get service due to the fact that they are operating on a Sunday level snow schedule.

I will keep everybody up to date on Facebook and Twitter as much as I can this is what I’ve heard so far anybody with any additional Ms please feel free to comment and post status as you hear it coming in off the in area.

Lane transit district office may not be open tomorrow and many of their regular operations may be canceled for tomorrow or suspended the 79 x if does not change will operate on a regular schedule the u of o campus will try to be open at noon they may cancel in the morning check your local news for that also any students that may have to go to Lane community college you may want to call your college to make sure you have school cuz as okay zr9 news at 11 it was canceled.

Road conditions 38 and much of 58 and 126 are closed as of today the inclement weather conditions have created traveling difficulties for much of Lane County so I can let you really have to go somewhere they’re encouraging everybody to stay home and stay safe and warm.

forecasters are hoping that this will be the final day of the snows days much of the land kind of schools have just taken it as a snow day for the rest of the week and will not be operational until Monday of next week.

so there’s your latest road report and weather conditions for the next 7 days. we’re going to have a little bit of a chill out but it is better to be safe than sorry and a little bit of a suggestion if you’re going to be going somewhere plan extra half-hour for travel time also give yourself enough time to get there and plan an hour ahead of schedule so you’re on time.

Oregon’s department of transportation is asking people and requesting that if you have no place to go please stay home stay off the highways and remain safe and sound at your own home or you have heat.

and the power company is working really hard to get power back on so for those of you without power please be careful cover up or snuggle up to a blanket or do something to get warm. if you have a downed power line and you wish to report it please contact your local power company or go to smart hub and make sure to report it there in any other issues you may have please report it directly to the police or local law enforcement.

And if it’s an emergency please call direct 911.and please remember that this is a critical and current weather condition which is going to last the better part of tonight into tomorrow afternoon so please use caution and be safe and if you don’t have to go somewhere don’t.

Thank you and have a wonderful safe week
