METEOROLOGIST MELISSA FREY’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Happy Halloween! The rain started falling in the valley at about 6:00 this morning and hasn’t let up much since. The heaviest rain has been across western Washington and northwest Oregon, here are some of the 24 hour rainfall totals as of 11 a.m.:
-Nehalem River (North Coast Range): 3.29″
-Lincoln City: 1.64″
-North Bend: .60″
A cold front is making its way across the state today and the rain will stick with us through this evening. Once the front passes, our temperatures will fall from the low 60s to the mid 50s by this evening. The rain will also transition to more scattered showers by tonight. Scattered showers will continue Thursday as well.
By Friday we’ll be in the clear for the most part. We’ll see partly cloudy skies and highs near 60 degrees. We’ll see a few showers late Friday early Saturday morning as a weak front passes through, the best chances though will be near the coast and the northern valley.
Have a happy and safe Halloween!
