Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Evening Forecast Discussion:
A drizzly day overall as a cold front is trying to stall out over Oregon, keeping things cloudy, cool, and some occasional showers on and off as we head into this evening. However, the clouds should provide a nice blanket thus overnight lows will hold on the mild side, in the mid 40s.
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. There’s a chance to see some light showers that evening ahead of the storm in the mountains but most everyone should stay dry tomorrow.
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 4000 feet Thursday and Friday morning. Through the weekend, its more wet weather overall, but there will be some breaks on Saturday. Sunday and early next week, more weaker systems will move through the state, each bringing a new round of showers.
Have a great Wednesday!
