CHIEF METEOROLOGIST JUSTIN STAPLETON’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Another nice and sunny afternoon (but still dry!) across most of Western Oregon. Clouds drifting in mixed with mostly clear skies tonight with some valley low clouds and marine layer at the coast filling in for Tuesday morning. Lows tonight will be a tad warmer than the upper 30s today, back down into the low 40s.
Tomorrow, a cold front will bring the first rain chances since Sunday and hopefully actually give us more rain than Sunday’s rather um-impressive amount. Clouds increasing through the day with isolated showers starting in the evening, overnight. Light showers will be on and off most of Thursday, wrapping up by Friday morning. Fans of the mild weather will enjoy the next couple of days as highs won’t move out of the 60s and low 70s.
Friday and the weekend also stay mild overall, with a few weak systems bringing a mix of clouds and some afternoon sun and highs in the mid 60s. Your weekend plans won’t be too impacted by rain showers, the best chance right now looks to be late Saturday into Sunday morning. Overall, if you’re planning to head to either the softball regional games or baseball Civil War this weekend, I don’t think the weather will impact your plans.
Have a great Wednesday!
