CHIEF METEOROLOGIST JUSTIN STAPLETON’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Some pesky clouds hung over Western Oregon most of the day keeping highs some ten degrees cooler than the 70s this weekend, but still able to make it into the low 60s. Overnight, we’ll keep the clouds and lows settle down into the mid to upper 40s.
Tuesday and Wednesday sees the return to sunny afternoons and highs climbing back into the mid to upper 60s. A ridge of high pressure slides over top keeping us rain free for another couple of days. Highs on Wednesday will likely push back close to 70.
Thursday brings in the first of a series of storms that returns our weather pattern back to a more typical one for this time of year: cooler, with scattered showers and mountain snow. Showers will continue on and off Friday through most of the weekend. By Saturday, highs will only be in the upper 50s and snow lines falling down close to Pass level. Ski resorts will enjoy some fresh late season powder, but the early run of late spring weather will be at an end for the rest of us.
Have a great Tuesday!
Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton
