Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion
We’ve seen three storms in three days and we’re going to add another two storms in the next two days.
The jet stream is still shooting right into western Oregon. We have a cold front that is headed our way later this morning. This will keep the showers going off and on through this afternoon. Highs will struggle to get out of the 50s today and the freezing level will fall from 5,000 feet to 4,500 feet by tonight. The Cascades will see a snow rain/mix, likely changing to all snow above 4,500 feet by tomorrow morning.
Another storm is tracking to move across western Oregon Wednesday. This cold front would bring in another round of rain showers in the afternoon and keep our highs in the upper 50s and low 60s.
By Thursday we dry out and with high pressure in place, we should stay that way through Saturday. We’ll also start to warm up with highs returning to the upper 60s and low 70s by Saturday.
A small storm is tracking to move in on Sunday.
Have a great start to the week!
