Meteorologist Marisa Woloszyn’s Forecast Discussion:
Isolated showers will continue for the first part of Sunday ahead of the next strong frontal system. The warm front will move through Sunday afternoon, pushing the snow lines up to 4500 feet; snow will fall above this level and heavy rain below. The cold front will follow early Monday morning, dropping the snow lines to 1500 feet; heavy rain and snow showers will continue. Communities at elevations above 4500 feet can expect 6-12″ of new snow through Monday afternoon.
High wind will also be associated with this system, and a High Wind Warning has been issued for the coast. Winds will be out of the south 35-50 mph with gusts 65-75 mph along beaches and headlands. Winds for coastal communities will be slightly weaker with sustained winds 30-45 mph and gusts around 55-65 mph. Breezy conditions will be in store for the rest of western Oregon.
The weather calms down Monday night, but a series of weaker systems swing through throughout the week. We will remain in a showery patter with highs in the low to mid 40s and lows in the mid 30s.
Have a super Sunday!
