Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
Grab the rain gear, it’s going to be another soggy day across Oregon!
An area of low pressure is making it’s way into western Oregon today. This will bring in even heavier rainfall and a much cooler air mass from the north. The chilly air will drop the freezing level to about 5,000 feet Tuesday night and to just 4,500 feet Wednesday. This will increase our chances to see a few isolated thunderstorms across western Oregon Tuesday and will bring back snow to the Cascades passes Tuesday night and Wednesday.
Showers from this storm will linger into Wednesday for all of western Oregon. Highs will stay in the low 60s in the valley.
Starting Thursday a ridge of high pressure will move into western Oregon. This will dry us out and keep us mostly sunny through the weekend. Temperatures will return to the mid 60s Thursday, upper 60s Friday and we’ll climb to the low 70s for Saturday and Sunday!
Have a great day!
