Road conditions for Southern Oregon and Northern California.
The first snows of the year have already happened. Temps in the mountains can be very cold in the mornings. You can expect that slick spots due to frost or other moisture can happen with no warning. Always drive with caution in the mornings as you could hit an icy spot at any time even if the highway reports through ODOT and Cal Trans are not reporting slick conditions.
11/1 - STUDDED TIRES ARE LEGAL FOR USE IN OREGON. However, it is looking like it will be the middle of the month at least before they will be needed. Please wait to put them on until it looks more likely they will be needed. Studs do a lot of damage to roads.
We now have conditions for Oregon Highway 42 in Southern Douglas County and Coos County. Click here to reach that page.
