Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
Happy Halloween! This year’s Trick-Or-Treating forecast is pretty decent! We do have a warm front rolling through western Oregon this afternoon, but its not very impressive. We’ve seen the clouds and just a few isolated showers, mainly in the northern Willamette Valley, north Coast Range and northern Cascades. These will locations will continue to be the primary spots for any isolated showers through this evening, which still won’t be much precipitation. Most showers will be wrapped up by 5 p.m.
The clouds will clear quickly late tonight and lows will fall to the low 40s by sunrise Friday. We’ll likely start the day with fog, but it’ll be back to mostly sunny skies by the afternoon. Highs will top out near 60°
A rather large storm moves in Saturday. This cold front will bring in heavy rainfall, strong winds, and snow above 4,000 feet. On-shore flow continues Sunday through Tuesday. This means scattered showers will continue off and on this entire time. A much cooler air mass will also move into western Oregon at this same time. Highs will fall to the low 50s Sunday – Tuesday.
Have a safe and fun Halloween!
