More Rain and Mountain Snow

Justin’s Monday Night Forecast Discussion: 

Isolated showers on and off overnight tonight but overall, most of the action will be in the mountains where another 6-12″ could fall overnight at 3000 feet and above. The passes will likely be very hard to get over by morning.

With the strong NW jetstream pointed at us we’ve got another day of scattered showers and snow piling up in the mountains. Rain and snow should start to taper off by late Wednesday as the ridge of high pressure spilling all the showers on us now, moves closer to the NW coastline. By Thursday and into the weekend, we’ll end the month like we’ve spent most of it: dry with morning fog and some afternoon sunshine.

There’s a chance that here in the Willamette valley we may see more dense fog set up if the ridge plants itself directly overhead like last week. Staying positive though, we should be able to get some partly sunny skies by the weekend with highs holding in the mid to upper 40s. The coast will be very pleasant this weekend with low 50s and sun and snow lovers, get up to the resorts!

Have a great Tuesday!
