Temperatures will rise some through the weekend, with highs in the middle 50s through the weekend. In the Cascades, temperatures will rise as well into upper 30s for the passes. That also means snow levels will rise to between 3,000 and 4,000 feet.

Models continue to show several pieces of energy moving through the region through next week. That will keep shower chances in the forecast. Monday’s front does appear to be a bit heavier, with showers continuing on Tuesday and Wednesday.

This continued wet pattern will help put a dent into our overall dry March. The rainfall deficit for the month it sitting between -1.44 inches in Roseburg to as much as -4.37 inches at the coast in North Bend. The snowpack is also down, with Willamette Basin at 88% of normal and the Rogue/Umpqua Basin at 71% of normal.
