Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Evening Forecast Discussion:
Boy, is it just me or does it feel like we’ve jumped straight into October with the cool, soggy weather we’ve seen this weekend, continuing into Monday. We’ll see more showers overnight into Tuesday. Expect it to stay unseasonably cool for the next couple of days.
Another system is sliding down the Western Canadian coastline and will enhance the showers for Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday. With the cold nature of the air (its Arctic origin basically), with some sun breaks thrown in, we may be in store for some isolated thunderstorms, especially late afternoon and early evening. Highs will stay unseasonably cool for this time of year, in the low 60s Tuesday and Wednesday. The cold air will also drop snow lines down to 4500 feet possibly Wednesday morning. Mountain travelers may see our first dusting along the Passes and certainly accumulating snow around Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood.
Dry time looks to finally move back in by next Thursday and Friday with high pressure bringing sunny skies and finally a return to highs in the 70s.
Have a great Tuesday!
