A powerful Pacific storm is forecast to bring heavy snow and gusty winds to most of Eastern Oregon, including Baker County, tonight and continuing into Wednesday, one of the busiest travel days of the year.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for Baker County, in effect from 4 p.m. Tuesday through 4 p.m. Wednesday, for 3 to 6 inches of snow at lower elevations and 6 to 12 inches in the mountains, along with areas of blowing and drifting snow.

Drier but colder weather is forecast for the rest of the holiday week, with temperatures staying below freezing during the day and dipping into the single digits at night.
