Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
Same story as last night, most of the rain that will try to fall will do so north of Western Oregon as a warm front approaches the Washington coastline. There’s a slight chance to see isolated showers after midnight, however, the main event for rain will be on Thursday. Overnight lows will also fall only into the upper 40s under cloudy skies.
Thursday is shaping up to be the first real wet day we’ve seen all month, considering we’ve only received .14″ of rain so far. A strong cold front will move through mainly in the afternoon and evening, dropping some heavy showers and steady rain at times. Cloudy as well with highs holding near 60, the rain will taper off late night with some occasional showers extending into Friday morning. Conditions start to dry out and we should be back to mostly sunny skies for Friday afternoon.
For the weekend, highs will be back into the mid 60s. Saturday afternoon/evening may also see some light showers, however, things appear to be wrapped up later on that evening. Aside from some dew and light fog, Easter Sunday should be dry. Highs will climb back into the mid 60s but a few sun breaks may be about it as the winds will be coming in off the ocean along with plenty of cloud cover from the jet stream. That might be the only day, as more rain showers are back for much of early next week.
Have a great Tuesday night!
