Several disturbances will bring a chance for showers all week with the most numerous showers likely along and near the Cascade and Siskiyou mountains. This weather pattern is difficult to pin-down when and where the showers will fall because we aren’t dealing with well defined frontal systems, but rather disturbances. The first moved through overnight and will continue to bring isolated light showers through the day, mainly west of the Cascades. A larger disturbance tomorrow will bring more widespread, yet still light showers, tomorrow to the area with possibly moderate rain at times at the coast. Then Thursday we’ll return to a more isolated shower pattern, mainly along the mountain ranges and further west and perhaps a sprinkle on Good Friday.
Easter weekend we’ll be influenced by a low pressure that is going to swing into central California and the wrap around moisture will bring in another chance for showers Saturday into Easter. Not only will the low pressure wrap moisture around it will provide southerly flow which will warm temperatures 10 to 15 degrees above normal! If this system dips further south areas of southern Oregon could stay relatively dry, but the track of the low is not set in stone this far out.
