…WETTER AND COOLER WEATHER THIS WEEKEND…

 

Widespread rain is on the way for this weekend, with rain moving onto the South Washington and North Oregon Coast Friday morning.

Rain will spread into the Willamette Valley Friday afternoon. Rain will continue on and off through Sunday, tapering off Monday.

Expect most of the rain to fall Friday night into Saturday, when amounts of around 0.5 inch are forecast.

 

Snow levels will also be falling lower than they have been in a while, dropping down to around pass levels Saturday night into Sunday morning. While pavement temperatures will prohibit snow from sticking at the passes, people up in the mountains camping or hiking may encounter an inch or two of snow if up above 4500 feet overnight Saturday night into Sunday morning. Snow levels will be lifting back up above the passes Sunday.

 

Daytime high temperatures will also be much cooler than normal, with highs only in the low 60s for most of the area near sea level.
