PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - An icy, snowy weekend is forecast for much of Oregon.

The National Weather Service says a storm is expected to hit the Eugene-Springfield area Saturday morning, with a mix of snow and freezing rain hitting an area that is recovering from its worst ice storm in decades.

Snow and sleet are also in the forecast for northwest Oregon, possibly coating streets and sidewalks with a half-inch of ice. Those in the Columbia River Gorge could see 6 to 12 inches of snow.

In Eastern Oregon, the wind-chill factor may be 20-30 degrees below zero in some areas on Friday, with warmer temperatures on Saturday and Sunday bringing snow, sleet and ice.

A National Weather Service advisory for Central Oregon says Bend, Prineville and Redmond could get 2 to 4 inches of snow Saturday afternoon and evening.
