Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
Another round of rain is on the way for western Oregon as a second cold front moves through the region. Rain will likely continue through this evening along with breezy winds. The air is already warm with overnight lows only falling to the low 50s but we won’t warm much this afternoon. Highs will only top out in the mid 50s.
The freezing level is back above the passes this morning, but will drop to around 4,500 feet tonight. As long as this happens before the precipitation is done, the passes will likely see an inch or two of snow late tonight.
Behind these storms the jet stream will head north and high pressure returns to the Pacific Northwest. We’ll dry out Wednesday and stay that way through Sunday. Our skies will clear and we’ll see off shore flow, but this time of year that means chilly weather! Lows will fall to the mid 30s tonight and just 20s Wednesday night through Friday night. Highs will only make it back to the mid 40s in the afternoon.
Have a great Tuesday!
