That sets up a chance of snow tomorrow and Thursday in the Columbia River Gorge and Hood River Valley, and possibly across the Portland-Vancouver area. Forecasters expect 3-to-6 inches of snow in the Bend area tomorrow and Thursday.

SILVERTON, Ore. (AP) — The Marion County sheriff’s office says a man who walked into traffic last night was struck by a vehicle and killed in Silverton. The driver remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators.

NEWPORT, Ore. (AP) – The woman accused of throwing her 6-year-old autistic son off a bridge on the Oregon Coast has yet to enter a plea.
