GOVERNMENT CAMP -- A winter storm warning was issued for the Northern Oregon Cascades lasting through early Wednesday morning as heavy snow started to fall early Monday.

Snow will pile up today, tonight and the next few days, said KGW meteorologist Nick Allard. I expect about six to 10 inches today and about 14 to 20 inches tonight.
