Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
A weakening cold front is spitting out some light showers this evening as it moves across Western Oregon, temperatures are cooling quickly into the 40s with the colder air moving in behind the front. While we might see some occasional showers, most of the rain (what does fall) will wrap up quickly tonight. Lows will again fall into the mid to low 30s for Spring’s kickoff on Thursday.
Spring officially starts Thursday at 9:57 AM on the west coast, but it’ll feel more like winter with lows starting in the mid 30s and some leftover morning showers from Wednesday’s storm. Thursday will also see a chance for some leftover showers, mainly in the afternoon with some sunshine stirring up a few pop up showers. Some of those showers may also contain small hail. Light snow showers will fall at or around 4000 feet.
However, Spring starts to finally make an appearance by Friday and the weekend. Some patchy morning fog but all sunny skies by the afternoons. Highs will climb back to around 60 by the weekend. The warmer weather holds through Monday, with showers back by Tuesday night and Wednesday.
Have a great Wednesday night!
