As the front shifts inland Thursday night, rain will become more showery. Higher terrain will be more favorable for showers on Friday, with much of the interior valleys being in a rain shadow. Showers will slow on Friday morning, leaving mostly cloudy skies for Valentine’s Day evening and overnight Friday into Saturday. 

The next, stronger front will arrive Saturday, bringing heavier rain and mountain snow. Rain will start in northwestern Oregon and spread south and east throughout the morning. Models are suggesting that this will be a wet system, with the potential of 1 to 3 inches of rain through Saturday night. In terms of snow, 1 to 2 feet of snow is possible with a snow level between 3,500 to 4,500 feet. This means that a Winter Storm Warning is looking likely at this time.

Showers will continue on Sunday, but the pattern will quickly shift on Monday. High pressure will build through the middle of the week, bringing sunshine and low to middle 50s.
