Freezing fog is making travel in Central Oregon tough. Three flights out of Redmond's Roberts Field were cancelled this morning and a major highway was blocked last night.  Redmond -Horizon flights to Seattle, Portland and Salt Lake City were grounded this morning.  Freezing fog also halted flights last night.

And north of Madras, weather was the main factor in an accident that closed Highway 97 and Highway 197 at Cow Canyon.  "It seems that what we're getting is this freezing fog that's settling in and as we get out there to take care of it, it freezes up faster than we can get to it.  So we put our gear out on the highway to try and sand it and de-ice it;  by the time we get up to the Cow Canyon Area the 2 trucks had gone sideways.” Peter Murphy with ODOT says no one was injured in the crash. Throughout Central Oregon, numerous minor accidents were reported last night and this morning.  Weather forecasters are expecting an active weather pattern throughout the week.
