Meteorologist Marisa Woloszyn’s Forecast Discussion:
A surface low pressure system will move across the area Monday, keeping scattered rain showers and cool temperatures in the forecast. Above 5,500′ showers will be snow showers with new accumulation amounts around 1-3″, higher amounts expected north of HWY 126 on the western Cascade slopes. Gusty winds will also accompany this system; wind gust will be near 40 mph along the coast and near 30 mph in the Willamette Valley. High temps will be in the low to mid 50s.
The showers become more isolated Tuesday as the disturbance pushes off to the east. High temps still remain cool in the low 50s. Wednesday and Thursday look to be the driest days this week. Skies will be partly sunny with afternoon highs in the low 50s.
Have a Marvelous Monday!
