METEOROLOGIST MARISA WOLOSZYN’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Freezing rain Saturday brought 0.25-0.50″ of ice across the area, weighing down the trees and causing their limbs to snap. As we move into Sunday we begin our transition back to normal.
Temperatures Sunday morning are starting off around freezing in the Willamette Valley, but are warmer everywhere else. Temps will continue to climb into the 40s in the valley and foothills and into the 50s along the coast and in the Umpqua Basin Sunday this afternoon, which will help melt the ice and snow across the area.
A series of storms will move into the Pacific Northwest this week bringing rain and mountain snow. Snow lines will remain above at least 4,500 feet through the week, meaning good snow for the ski resorts and a relief for the rest of us. The storms Tuesday and Thursday will also causes some breezy conditions along the coast, with wind gusts near 30-40 mph.
Have a good Sunday.
