The day came to a standstill when an unexpected bout of snow began falling Tuesday morning, causing a Winter Weather Advisory to be issued within the bounds of Corvallis, Ore.

Oregon State University sent out an email advising students and faculty against travel until at least 5 p.m. 

“Road conditions are reported to be slippery, especially on packed snow,” the email read.

While no accidents of road closures have been reported within the city limits, TripCheck from the Oregon Department of Transportations will provide real-time updates of road conditions. 

Updates will be made as the story progresses.
