METEOROLOGIST MELISSA FREY’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
The storms are lining up back to back. The next cold front is set to arrive late Wednesday afternoon. This will bring in scattered showers which will stick with us into Thursday morning. Highs will stay in the upper 40s with low sin the mid 30s. The snow level will climb to about 2,500 feet today, and then back to 2,000 feet Thursday.
A second cold front will move in Thursday night. This will also bring in a round of showers and snow for the higher foothills.
The biggest storm of the week will hold off until Friday. A cold front will move in Friday afternoon that will bring in heavy rain and windy conditions. The snow level will climb to around 3,500 feet ahead of this storm while temperatures in the valley get back into the upper 40s and low 50s. Behind the front the snow level will drop to near 1,000 feet Saturday morning while scattered showers continue to move through western Oregon.
Most of Sunday is looking dry, but another storm is lined up for Monday.
Have a great day!
