EUGENE, Ore. -- With a warm front to the north, another mild day is expected in western Oregon with temperatures in the 50s and partly to mostly cloudy skies. The warm front will still bring light showers to the Coast and in the Cascades, while the Willamette Valley and Umpqua Basin will continue to remain mainly dry.

Behind the front, showers will continue on Saturday. The valley will likely receive close to 0.25 inch, while the coast will be between 0.25 to 0.5 inches.

In addition to rain, snow is expected in the Cascades overnight Friday into Saturday. Snow levels will start around 6,000 feet and fall to near 2,500 feet. There is currently a winter weather advisory for the northern Oregon Cascades, including Santiam Pass, where 6 to 12 inches of new snow is possible from 6 p.m. Friday night to 4 p.m. Saturday afternoon. That said, with the recent mild temperatures in the Cascades, it will take longer for snow to accumulate on pass roadways.

Showers will end on Saturday night as high pressure builds into the Pacific Northwest, but will leave fog behind on Sunday morning. The fog will give away to sunshine by the afternoon as well as temperatures near normal.

Sunshine will continue through much of the next week, with temperatures remaining in the low 50s. Early indications do point to wetter weather returning next weekend.
