METEOROLOGIST MELISSA FREY’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Storm #4 is on this way! We’re in the calm between storms for most of Monday. We’ll see mostly cloudy skies, a possible passing showers and highs in the mid 50s.
Tuesday morning will look quite a bit different. We’ll start to see the rain after dinner Monday night, followed by high winds at the coast. The Coast is under a High Wind Warning from midnight trough 4 p.m. Tuesday for south winds of 60-70 mph and gusts to 90 mph along the beaches and headlands. Heavy rain will continue all day Tuesday, and localized flooding will once again be a concern.
The Coquille River is under a flood warning in Coquille because it is two and a half feet above flood stage. It is not expected to drop below flood stage until Thursday. Other rivers in western Oregon will also be quite full by Tuesday afternoon.
Once we get through this storm we don’t have any other big rain makers in the forecast. We will continue to see scattered showers through the end of the week, and it will become much cooler as air begins to move in from the north. We’ll see high temperatures drop to the mid 40s by the second half of the week, with lows in the mid 30s.
Have a great Monday!
