Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
A perfect end to our first full Spring weekend with sunny skies and highs today topping into the low to mid 60s! Big changes are brewing though as a series of storms will blast the mild, spring weather out of here and we’re back to a soggy 7-day forecast. Tonight, its clear skies again with a quick cool off. Monday morning starts off chilly again in the mid 30s.
Monday is the last day of sunny and warm weather, ahead of some jarring changes with highs pushing again into the mid to upper 60s. Sunny at first, then high clouds start streaming in late in the afternoon. By evening, some sprinkles along the coast, with the first wave of rain expected as we head into Tuesday. Tuesday will be wet and breezy all over the region. Additionally, there’s a slight chance some areas may see isolated thunderstorms in the afternoon as cold, unstable air rushes into Western Oregon.
A series of storms slams the coastline from Wednesday through the weekend bringing heavy rain at times, showers for sure, and colder air that’ll push snow lines down to around 3500 feet by Thursday. Ski resorts should pick up a nice late season dump of snow. Meanwhile, our sunny, 60-degree weather will be replaced by low 50s and rain through most of the week. So get outside and enjoy the sunny weather tomorrow!
Have a great Sunday night!
