Meteorologist Matt Callihan's Forecast: Showers to begin your weekend, but drier conditions are on the way this afternoon. Mostly cloudy skies through Western Oregon today, with decreasing clouds throughout the weekend. Temperatures will be in the mid to lower 60s for the Willamette Valley, upper 60s for the Umpqua Basin, and upper 50s for the Coast.
Oregon is the home to the deepest lake in the United States, famous waterfalls and in western Oregon, abundant streams and rivers. The life blood of our community is this water, all fueled by nearly 50 inches of rain and hundreds of inches of snow that falls in the Cascades every year. This year we didn't get that critical snow and we're already seeing the consequences.
