Transitioning Back to Dry

video preview image


Overnight tonight we’ll continue a chance for a few isolated light showers mainly at the coast into Douglas county and the Cascades. Tonight will be another chilly one, a trend that will continue into the weekend though afternoon highs will be quite mild. In fact highs will be 5 to 10 degrees above average this weekend, meaning mid-50s on the east side and low-60s for the west side valleys. Valleys will see patchy freezing fog in the morning hours through the weekend, though fog will not linger long and all areas should see plenty of sunshine through the weekend as high pressure builds back in.

An active weather pattern will return next week with showers Monday with a few showers possible into Tuesday. Wednesday afternoon more widespread rain moves back into the area continuing into Thursday. Snow levels at this time look to remain above pass level between 5,500 and 7,000 feet, though this is still a week away and things can change. By the end of next week we could see a very windy and wet storm system moving in, but this is even further out so it’s worth a mention now and we’ll continue to track it!
