The weekend will see both dry and wet conditions as a storm system starts to move into the region through the end of the weekend. Rain will begin light, but as we head into early next week heavier showers will appear. Temperatures overall will remain below average as well.
The Willamette Valley will see mostly cloudy skies on Saturday. The day will be dry overall with temperatures in the lower 60s, winds may gust at times—taking on a southeasterly direction. On Sunday the morning is setting up on the dry side of the coin, but wetter weather will arrive in the afternoon. Highs on Sunday will only manage to warm to the mid 50s. Rainfall will be light around the area until Monday when a wider wedge of rain arrives.
The Oregon Coast should also manage a dry Saturday with cloud cover overhead. The morning may begin with some patchy fog but it should lift by the afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 60s with no real opportunity for rain. Come Sunday rain pushes onshore from the Pacific Ocean. Rain Sunday will start light but become heavier and more widespread by Sunday evening. Temperatures will be in the lower 60s and upper 50s. Starting Monday heavier rain will appear. A few dry hours are possible on Monday but for the most part the day will be wet.
The Umpqua Valley is facing some dry weather to begin the weekend. Partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies are expected in the lower 60s. Clouds will be more common in the afternoon. Light rain will arrive Sunday afternoon across Douglas County. Highs on Sunday will remain below 60 degrees as well. Monday will see clouds and more rainfall. Showers will be off and on but certainly present for the first few days of next workweek.
