Good morning!

Clouds are spreading across northwest Oregon and southwest Washington out ahead of our next storm system. Most of today will be dry, but cloudy skies will keep temperatures on the cool side of things. Our valley locations will gradually climb through the 50s, topping out in the low to mid 60s. Our coastal communities will probably only max out in the 50s today. Showers will begin to spread over the coast this evening, and will spill inland tonight.

As we head into Saturday, a frontal system will push widespread rain across the region. Expect a soggy morning and early afternoon, with rain transitioning to scattered showers toward the end of the day. Behind the front, temperatures will cool down, only allowing afternoon highs to finish in the mid 50s inland. It will also be cool both Sunday and Monday, with periodic showers possible and high temps in the upper 50s. The lowest that our freezing level will fall between Saturday and Monday will be around 3,000 feet. We’ll see stretches of rain mixed in with snow at Government Camp, but elevations above 4,000 feet could end up with 5-10” of snow by Monday.  

Looking ahead to Tuesday (and beyond), our weather should dry out for at least 2 days. It really all depends on how long high pressure builds in for. Some computer models bring showers back into the picture by Wednesday/Thursday, while others show a big warm up coming. We are going middle of the road for now, mentioning the chance for showers but also bumping highs into the upper 60s.  

Have a great Friday!
