Portland and Vancouver on winter storm watch for Wednesday, Thursday

Looks like it might be Portland and Vancouver's turn Wednesday and Thursday:
...WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FROM WEDNESDAY EVENING THROUGH THURSDAY MORNING FOR THE NORTHERN WILLAMETTE VALLEY AND CLARK COUNTY IN SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON AND THE I-5 CORRIDOR OF SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN PORTLAND HAS ISSUED A WINTER STORM WATCH...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM WEDNESDAY EVENING THROUGH THURSDAY MORNING.

ANOTHER PACIFIC SYSTEM WILL PUSH MOISTURE INTO THE NORTHERN WILLAMETTE VALLEY...CLARK COUNTY IN SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON AND THE I-5 CORRIDOR STARTING LATER WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND CONTINUING INTO THURSDAY MORNING. THIS PRECIPITATION WILL OVERRUN THE COLD AIR IN PLACE AND PRODUCE AREAS OF FREEZING RAIN WITH THE HIGHEST THREAT NEAR THE COLUMBIA RIVER AND IN THE PORTLAND VANCOUVER AREA.

THE PRECIPITATION WILL BE GREAT ENOUGH TO PRODUCE ICING OF ROADS AND SURFACES THROUGHOUT THE FREEZING RAIN AREAS. SOME SMALLER TREES OR BRANCHES ALONG WITH POWER LINES MAY COME DOWN.

A WINTER STORM WATCH MEANS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR SIGNIFICANT SNOW...SLEET...OR ICE ACCUMULATIONS THAT MAY IMPACT TRAVEL. CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS.
Oy, the freezing rain is the worst.
