Frontyard dispatches: Oregonians report what they see right outside their windows

It’s mostly rain falling on the Portland area, though snow is falling at higher elevations and to the east of the Willamette — and once more, our well-oiled Oregonian staff machine is looking outside their windows and reporting what they see.

Here’s a round-up of first impressions about the weather:

7:20 a.m. in Rose City:

36 degrees and raining, at least an inch on the lawns. Streets are a slushy mess. — Emily Fuggetta

From inner Southeast at 6:56 a.m.: Slushy streets and steady rains didn’t keep Floyd’s Coffee Shop on Southeast Morrison from opening, but it did make the Belmont bus route more than 20 minutes behind schedule. — Molly Young

At 6:43 a.m., Sellwood has two inches of snow/slush on the streets. Traffic is moving fine, but it is sparse. Appears to already be raining, not snowing. — Sue Jepsen

North Portland at 6:36 a.m., roofs, lawns and cars are draped in snow, with side streets marked by slushy tracks where the first cars have ventured out. — Lynne Terry

Tualatin at 6:10 a.m., one block west of Tualitan high school: steady rain. No ice. Light wind. — Michelle Cole

Oregon City at 6:09 a.m., near the new high school off Beavercreek Road: several inches of snow on the ground, but steady rain starting to melt the snow. Temperature is 36 degrees. Roads are slushy and slick — Jolene Krawczak

Laurelhurst neighborhood at 6:05 a.m., maybe an inch, streets fine, rain falling. — Scott Learn

And in Washington County’s Cedar Mill area, it was 37.8 degrees and raining hard at 4 a.m. — Jerry Casey. Snow was on the ground, but it was very slushy and raining.
