Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
An area of low pressure is sitting just off the coast of Coos Bay. This storm is going to slowly make it’s way northeast throughout the day. The first band of showers and thundershowers hit the mid valley around midnight, with a second wave just before sunrise. Another band is moving on-shore at 10 a.m. bringing rain and thunder storms to folks from Coos Bay to Florence.
As this area of low pressure move through Thursday we’ll likely see scattered showers across western Oregon for most of the day and chances for thunderstorms through this afternoon. The rain won’t completely wrap up until Friday mid-morning.
This storm is bringing with it a colder air mass. Highs will fall to the low 70s.
We’ll clear out rather quickly Friday afternoon and it’s back to summer like weather for the weekend! Highs Friday will be in the mid 70s, then it’s back to the low to mid 80s this weekend and mid to upper 80s early next week.
Have a great day!
