Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Evening Forecast Discussion:
More rain showers in the forecast for tonight as the next system spills into the Pacific Northwest. Overnight scattered showers will continue for a soggy start to Tuesday’s forecast. Overnight lows will hold on the mild side, in the mid 40s.
There’s not a lot of dry time in our next 7 days as a series of storms will climb over the jetstream and collide with the coastline. Showers will remain on and off for most of Tuesday morning and afternoon. We’ll see things taper off as we head into Wednesday, in fact, ahead of a stronger storm Thursday, Wednesday will likely be mild with highs back into the upper 50s and low 60s.
Thursday, a strong storm blasts the coast for more wind and rain, a good soaking inland and snow in the mountains. Snow levels, that will rise to 7500 feet tomorrow, will crash down to approximately 3500 feet Thursday and Friday. Through the weekend, its more wet weather overall, but there will be some breaks on Saturday. The pattern looks to stay fairly active over the next couple of weeks as well, so its time to re-enter Fall in Oregon!
Have a great Tuesday!
