It’s not even winter yet and another storm is headed our way. This latest system is expected to bring 2-3 inches of snow in the Bend area and as much as 8 inches at Mount Bachelor. Mark Thibodeau with the Weather Channel says besides snow and some wind, the storm it may also bring some freezing rain. It's a very dangerous combination, even for experienced winter drivers. "Snow is one thing; it actually creates traction on the roads but when you have snow falling and you're mixing it up with freezing rain once in awhile we can get what is called transparent or black ice that's simply just ice that imbeds itself with the snow and when that happens you can't see it. So that can make for a dangerous situation." Thibodeau says this system should be winding down Wednesday morning and then another wetter storm should hit Central Oregon on Thursday. Forecasters expect some snow to continue off and on through Sunday, especially in the higher elevations.
