METEOROLOGIST MELISSA FREY’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
The first raindrops of February will begin to fall early Tuesday morning when a cold front moves across western Oregon. This storm won’t produce much rain, but will keep scattered showers around for most of the day. Highs will stay in the low 50s with lows in the upper 30s. The freezing level will drop to about 3,500 feet by Tuesday night and the Cascade Passes will see 1-3″ of fresh snow.
Most of Wednesday is looking dry for the valley, the coast and northern Willamette Valley will see a few isolated showers. The next storm moves in Thursday and will bring in another round of scattered showers.
Temperatures will drop behind this storm and the freezing level will drop to about 2,000 feet by Friday morning. By this time though, most of the precipitation will wrap up and it’ll be back to dry weather for the weekend.
Have a great rest of your Monday!
