PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The Winter Storm Warning expired Sunday morning, but snow continues to fall in the Cascades.

Another 4 to 8 inches of snow is likely by the end of Sunday in the Cascades.

Skiers and snowboarders reported great powder at Timberline, and the parking lots were overflowing.

The rest of Oregon, though, is looking at isolated rain showers, possibly a thunderstorm.

Cooler air moves in and temperatures in the Pacfic Northwest fall to the upper 30s Sunday night.

ODOT said drivers should be aware of chain requirements:

— I-5 Canyon Mountain area, south of Canyonville – no current chain restrictions
— I-5 Siskiyou’s, south of Ashland. Chains still required on all vehicles except 4×4. Expect delays from the chain requirement and various crashes and spin outs. Both ODOT and the Oregon State Police are working the mountain.

The Geminid meteor shower will peak Sunday night, though the cloud cover in this area may keep them hidden. You may want to look at the sky around 11 p.m.
