Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Monday Forecast Discussion:
A warm front moved into northwest Oregon early Wednesday, bringing in overcast skies which helped to keep us warm overnight. The central and north Willamette Valley and Coast picked up light rain showers early, but we stayed dry south and we will all continue to stay dry through the day. The clouds will break up some this afternoon and highs will return to the low 60s in the Valley, mid 60s in the Umpqua Basin and upper 50s at the Coast.
By Thursday a stronger cold front will move across western Oregon. We’ll see good chances for rain Thursday afternoon and evening. Highs will stay in the low 60s.
Friday and Easter weekend are looking quite mild. We’ll still see partly to mostly cloudy skies and a chance for some very light showers overnight Saturday into early Sunday, but otherwise we’ll be dry with highs in the mid 60s.
Back to back fronts will move in Monday and Tuesday bringing in another round of rain showers across western Oregon.
Have a great day!
