The Rain is Coming Back

Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:

After only .04″ of rain on the year it’s been a very dry start, but we’re about to see the rainfall totals climb quickly this week

The ridge of high pressure that kept us dry most of last week and through the weekend is now moving east. This means the jet stream will move back over Oregon and we’ll see a return to stormy weather. The storms are lined up one after the other, tracking to move in about every 24 hours. The first storm headed our way will move in this afternoon. It’s rather small and will only bring clouds and a few scattered showers. Lows will be warmer tonight because of the extra cloud cover, we should only fall to the mid 30s. Highs Tuesday will return to the mid 40s.

Nothing that is headed our way later in the week is all that impressive, but we should see scattered showers Tuesday and Wednesday with heavier rain on Thursday. Friday is our best bet at dry conditions in between storms, but two more are headed our way for this weekend.

Highs will stay in the mid to upper 40s all week with lows in the upper 30s.

Have  a great start to the week!
