I won't knowingly drive (pickup and 5th wheel) on snowy or icy roads. I am looking for the best website to determine if the next day is likely to be safe for travel accross the mountains from about Redding CA, to Roseburg, Or on I-5.

thanks for any links.

Here is the site I use http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?zoneid=ORZ028 I don't know o to clicky it..


Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill because they pissed me off.

Pretty simple just wrap the url between [ url ] and [ /url ] - Just remove the spaces when doing so.

The Oregon highway department web site is Tripcheck.com

It has web cams, weather stations, and warnings. It shows 13 web cams between Weed CA and Roseburg.

NOAA also has a 7day forecast that is adjusted for local altitude. Here's forecast centered on I5 at the state border

this is the link to Oregon's road reports. I use it all the time to check when we go over the mountain to grandma's house.
