Justin’s Wednesday Night Forecast Discussion:
Showers continue to move across Western Oregon tonight changing over to snow above 3000 feet. Both Passes should see a nice inch or two by Wednesday morning. Lows will stay mild overnight in the low 40s. Winter Weather Advisories are up for the Southern Cascades, including Willamette Pass, which could see up to 2-3″ of snow overnight.
Thursday will see intermittent showers throughout the day and with the cold air overhead, we may even see an isolated t-storm at the coast. However, highs will be noticeably cooler in the mid 40s. Showers will wrap up quickly Thursday night and as of now, only carry a slight chance for some overnight low snow flurries down around 1500 feet. That’s when the coldest air will start to move in but also when the moisture will dry up.
Saturday may pull more cloud cover with it as a weak disturbance slides in over the ridge. There’s a slight chance for some drizzle at the coast and some sprinkles inland, but mainly just an overcast day. With the cold air and high pressure moving in, you can bet the rest of the weekend will be chilly with highs in the mid 40s and lows near freezing. BUT- nice to see another dry and (mostly) sunny weekend in February. And it looks like it’ll continue into next week as well.
Have a great Thursday!
