From the West Hills to Southeast Portland, Gladstone to Beaverton, snow is sticking throughout the Portland metro area.

Not all areas have snow, however. Many areas are just wet — including the downtown Portland core.

Temperatures are low in many places, however, hovering about freezing early Friday. So commuters should take caution regardless of whether their streets have a dusting of snow.

A winter weather advisory covering the Portland area, among others throughout the region, warns of up to an inch of snow. One to three inches could pile up in the hills above 500 feet, according to the advisory.

The advisory lasts until 10 a.m.

Portland Public Schools is one of many districts to delay the start of classes Friday. Centennial, David Douglas, Gresham-Barlow, Parkrose and Reynolds school districts are among those opening two hours late.
