Justin’s Weekend Forecast Discussion:
Tonight stays cloudy with a chance for some light drizzle at the coast and a passing sprinkle overnight inland, but that’s about all we’ll see. Our front that has hung at the coast all day is breaking apart with half heading into Washington and the other half into Northern CA. Lows tonight will fall into the mid 30s again. Icy spots are likely headed over the passes both in Oregon and into the Siskiyous.
Saturday and Sunday will be fairly nice for late December. There’s a chance for a weak wave of showers coming through late Saturday but it won’t make much of an impact on what will be an overall dry and cloudy day. Sunday should be very nice with a foggy start and a mostly sunny finish. It will be chilly as the air dries out, offshore winds pull in the cold Eastern Oregon air (where highs were in the teens today!)
NEW YEAR’S EVE/DAY: Can you believe that with as wet as it has been this December (almost 7.5″ so far), right now, its looking like the dry weather holds for both Monday and Tuesday. A weak front comes through Monday but it shouldn’t bring more than just clouds and dry for your party plans. Highs will be chilly in the low 40s for Monday and mid 30s by midnight. Rain showers finally start to break down the dry ridge by Wednesday night and Thursday.
Have a great weekend!
