Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
Now that it’s officially winter (as of Saturday morning) it’s actually looking more like fall! We made it to the 50s on both Saturday and Sunday and likely will today as well. Our average high for this time of year is only in the mid 40s.
Despite being on the warm side, we are seeing seeing rain today. A cold front is moving in from the northwest which is spreading rain showers across western Oregon. These showers will continue through this evening, but should taper off rather quickly tonight.
The clouds will clear overnight and the temperatures will drop. We should fall to the mid 30s tonight. Fog will likely form overnight and stick with us for much of Christmas Eve in the valley. This will also keep our temperatures in the mid 40s in the afternoon. When the clouds clear Tuesday night we should be able to drop to the mid 20s by early Wednesday morning.
This pattern of chilly foggy mornings and partly sunny mild afternoons will repeat itself for at least 6 days. There’s no rain in sight through Sunday. While the valley will get trapped in the fog, elsewere it will be mostly sunny and also dry all week.
Have a great Monday!
