METEOROLOGIST MELISSA FREY’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
We’re in between storms Wednesday, but the next front is already nearing the coast. Wednesday will likely be the last day this week with highs in the low 50s.
The next storm moves in late Wednesday night and will bring in the heaviest rain overnight through Thursday morning, changing to showers in the afternoon.
Temperatures will drop behind this storm and the freezing level will drop to about 2,000 feet Thursday morning and 1,500 feet by Thursday night. The higher foothills of the Cascades and Coast Range will likely see snow showers through the afternoon.
The area of low pressure associated with this storm will travel down the Oregon Coast early Friday. Right now the storm stays far enough off shore for us to stay dry all day Friday.
Another ridge of high pressure moves in for the weekend. We could see a few light showers Saturday before the ridge moves inland, but we’ll otherwise stay dry through Tuesday. At least some fog will form in the valley and it will also be on the cool side. Highs will stay in the mid 40s with lows in the low 30s.
Have a great rest of your Wednesday!
