Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
A storm is moving up the Oregon Coast Wednesday morning. This is spreading in scattered showers across western Oregon. They will be heavier in the morning and should taper off into the afternoon.
Highs will stay in the low to mid-50s for the Valley and mid-upper 50s for the Coast and Umpqua Basin. The snow level will hold at about 5,500′.
Most of Friday will be dry and partly sunny, as we’re in-between storms.
The next storm headed our way will actually be pulled into California Friday night. Southern Oregon will be on the very northern edge of this storm. This means showers are likely for Coos Bay and Roseburg Friday night and Saturday morning, but we could see showers as far north as Eugene/Springfield during this time.
Even those without the showers, will stay mostly cloudy with highs in the low 50s and lows in the upper 30s. Sunday we’ll see the opposite scenario. The northern Valley will likely see showers while the southern Valley and Umpqua Basin stay dry. The Cascades will see snow showers through the weekend down to 4,000′.
Two more storms are lining up to bring showers to all of western Oregon Monday and Wednesday.
Have a great day!
