Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
Friday will be the 22nd day of rain out of the 28 days this month. We’ve seen 7.87″ of precipitation, which is the more than any other month since March of 2012, but still 2.62″ less than normal for this point in February.
Not only will see rain on the last day of February, but also the first six days of March.
Most of Friday will be dry, although foggy and mostly cloudy. Highs will top out in the mid 50s.
The next storm headed our way is actually making a much bigger impact in central California, but is large enough that Oregon will be on the very northern edge of this storm. This means scattered showers are likely Friday afternoon through Saturday. The Cascades will see snow showers through the weekend down to 5,000′.
Once we get through this storm, a strong jet stream will carry a line of storms right into western Oregon. We’ll see showers Sunday through Thursday. Highs will stay in the mid 50s with lows in the mid 40s
Have a great weekend!
