Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Evening Forecast Discussion:
Hard to tell its September with accumulating snow at both Passes this morning and highs Wednesday sitting in the upper 50s and low 60s. That’s averaging 15 to 20 degrees below where we should be for this time of year! In fact, there were reports of a funnel cloud near Albany today. KEZI viewer, Bernie Horton snapped this pic:
Dry time looks to finally move back in for Thursday, with a weak area of high pressure moving through. Clouds will finally start to clear for mostly sunny skies and highs trying to bump back up into the mid and upper 60s.
But new models are indicating that the next warm front will quickly move through Friday evening and another cold front Saturday. It’s a safe bet both Beaver and Duck fans may have to bring the rain gear for the home games.
Showers intensify Sunday and stick around through Tuesday. I’m not expecting highs to get back above average (74) anytime soon. So I guess Fall has officially planted itself on the Pacific NW.
Have a great Wednesday!
