A cold front is making its way through the region this morning and brought some heavy rain last night and early this morning to some areas. Through the morning some post frontal showers are possible and maybe an isolated shower this afternoon. Winds pick up again today with gusts 30-50 mph possible, with the strongest winds along the Cascades and further east especially in Summer Lake. A wind advisory for this area continues until 5 PM today. The coast could see some strong winds this afternoon and into the overnight hours as well.
We’ll see gradual clearing today without much of a warm up thanks to the cold front and with clearing skies expect to see temperatures plummet this evening. With moisture present in the atmosphere we’ll see fog development in the valleys and basin and frost possible east of the Cascades as well as low lying areas on the west side. We’ll see a quick warm up back to unseasonably warm over the next couple of days before a week cold front approaches this weekend bringing in our next chance for rain and cooler temperatures.
Careful on roadways today as water may pool and for regions that haven’t seen rain yet the roads may be slippery. With winds picking up again today taller vehicles may be impacted.
