NEWS RELEASE

City of Seaside encouraging caution as Thursday storm front moves into area.

Seaside, Ore. – December 8, 2016 – The National Weather Service is predicting the potential for a severe weather event to enter the Seaside and Astoria area in the next 18-24 hours, and the City of Seaside is encouraging all residents and visitors to use caution with any activities they have planned or may be considering.

While it is expected that conditions could be fairly favorable when daylight first breaks tomorrow morning, it’s likely that predicted mid-morning snow could quickly turn to sleet and eventually freezing rain. What makes the possibility for this particular event to be so significant to motorists and anyone traveling is that the storm front could likely last from mid-morning (beginning around 9 a.m.) into the early evening hours (up until 7 or 8 p.m.) before we transition out of freezing precipitation and into regular rain.

East winds that are already starting to take shape late Wednesday afternoon are driving this event, and they are expected to continue well into Thursday afternoon and evening. This will keep temperatures along Oregon’s North Coast very cool and well below normal for our area. Ultimately, this leaves our area vulnerable to freezing rain and sleet for much of the day.

Seaside officials want to stress the importance to its residents to use extreme caution throughout the day as it is expected that the event will not yet have arrived when we first wake up Thursday morning. The Seaside School District has already announced a full closure of all school activities for Thursday, however the City of Seaside will be fully operational and prepared to act accordingly depending on the magnitude of the event.

This is a good reminder to make sure you have typical emergency and cold weather supplies on hand, including a good supply of blankets, water and easy to prepare foods. Officials will offer updates as they become available.

Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

The lights are turned way down low
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

But as long as you love me so
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
