METEOROLOGIST MELISSA FREY’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Although we were still well above average, this morning was a chilly start, compared to other mornings this week. We dropped to 45 degrees, the average is 39. The fog that developed this morning has lifted, but blue skies are going to be hard to come by as another storm is on the way.
We’re going to get clipped by the southern edge of a front as it moves NE across Oregon this afternoon. A few showers are possible this afternoon and evening. Highs will stay in the mid 50s.
Most of Saturday we’ll be dry, but there is a small area of low pressure that will move through the northwest corner of the state Saturday night. An isolated shower is possible Saturday evening, but I wouldn’t expect much.
A ridge of high pressure will build in Saturday afternoon, which will bring in a few more sun breaks, dry weather, and warmer air. We’ll stay this way through Tuesday.
Don’t forget the extra bonus we get this weekend…time to set your clocks back one hour Saturday night!
