Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Evening Forecast Discussion:
We’re finally starting to see the record-setting rainfall this weekend slowly wind down tonight. Rainfall totals are still adding up tonight, but now it’s mainly scattered showers and some breaks within those showers. If you want to see the latest list of records broken this weekend, here is a tally: Record September Rain
The rain isn’t over just yet, although, the next two days, it will be showers and breaks as opposed to the heavy, steady rain. Two smaller fronts will bring additional rain chances Tuesday morning, and then a slightly stronger one on Wednesday. Rainfall estimates will be another .25″ to .50″ overall, so no more multiple inches of rain coming.
By Thursday, high pressure starts to FINALLY move back across the Northwest. It’ll take about a day to clear out the leftover showers and low clouds. Friday and Saturday are looking sharp: warmer, back into the upper 60s and low 70s and mostly sunny skies! There’s a slight chance for another kick hit front swinging through Sunday, but we’ll see if it holds together this week.
Have a great Tuesday!
