Streets likely to be slick as Keizer dips below freezing; state offices opening late

The temperature in Keizer dropped below freezing overnight as the city got another light dusting of snow.

As a result, some institutions and government offices are opening late Monday or not at all.

And the National Weather Service is forecasting another front to move through Monday night that could deliver up to 3 inches of snow.

“For the rest of the week, temperatures will remain well below normal. Overnight lows for most lower elevations will remain in the 20s. Afternoon high temperatures will struggle to reach very far beyond the lower 30s, if at all,” according to the weather service.

“With these very cold temperatures, frostbite and hypothermia will occur much faster. If outdoors, remember to dress in layers and cover exposed skin,” the weather service said.

The high temperature in Salem was 35 on Sunday and is forecast to just reaching the freezing mark on Monday. Lows will be in the 20s the next few nights, with Wednesday night forecast to be the coldest at 23.
