U.S. 101 along the coast was passable, although the transportation department said 9 inches of water was keeping motorists to 5 mph south of Seaside. Oregon Department of Transportation officials and websites said storm-related closures remained in effect for two side roads - one in Yamhill County on Highway 153 and Highway 18 and another in Curry County, where trees blocked the Carpenterville Highway, Oregon 255. In the Rogue Valley, there's been an eyewitness report of a collision on Table Rock Road in the Central Point area. An intersection along Sage Road also had a large of amount of standing water on the road way. Freeways in southern Oregon were reporting wet, bare pavement along Interstate 5 on through the Siskiyou Summit. It is also raining along Highway 140, headed east to Klamath Falls. Highway 97 shows no report of snow as midday Tuesday. Highway 230 near Crater Lake is reporting slushy conditions and snow flurries.
