A VERY WARM THANKSGIVING WEEK

Sunday, Nov. 19, 4:00 P.M.

 

Mild and wet at times is the big message for this Thanksgiving Week. The rest of the week we'll see temperatures rise to above normal for late November. In fact we could even hit a record high Tuesday and/or Wednesday. Records are right around 60 degrees.

Expect a bunch of rain and wind tonight. There is a high wind warning up for the coastline but it's very marginal. Peak gusts 40-60 mph only. Behind the front we should be mainly dry and a bit milder tomorrow. So even though it'll pour tonight you'll have a chance to get outside tomorrow and not get soaked. Rain continues at times Tuesday through Thursday with warming temperatures.

TRAVEL THIS WEEK: Looks excellent! No mountain pass snow in any part of Oregon through Thanksgiving Day. That includes south into California and north into Washington too.
