Justin’s Tuesday Night Forecast Discussion:
A cold front has stalled right on top of Western Oregon tonight concentrating waves of showers along the central coast and central Willamette Valley. Overnight tonight, more showers will move across the region but taper off overnight. Rainfall totals tonight won’t be as much, likely a quarter to a half an inch.
Besides the Coquille, most area rivers are now likely cresting below flood stages with a dry day expected Wednesday. There still may be some light flooding near the banks for some rivers but no major flooding is expected.

Wednesday sees a short break in the rain, but come Thursday and into the weekend, a second low drops in from the Gulf of Alaska. It will mainly bring some scattered shower chances but no heavy rain is expected. It will shoot much colder air in so highs will likely drop into the mid to upper 40s by the end of the week. Snow levels will also drop into the foothills with batches of snow showers in the mountains all weekend.
Have a great Wednesday!
