Saturday will find itself between two storm systems, meaning the day should see plenty of rain breaks. A few showers will still make an appearance. Though much of the day is dry.
The Willamette Valley is entering a mostly cloudy Saturday with high temperatures in the mid 40s. Showers are expected on occasion, though more dry hours are expected than wet ones. Another storm arrives on Sunday. This storm will bring strong gusty winds and periods of heavy rain to the region. Temperatures will drop to the lower 40s for daytime highs. The storm is expected to linger into Monday before a break in the rain returns on Tuesday.
Up and down the Oregon Coast expect some high winds and high surf with the arrival of our next storm on Sunday. Saturday—ahead of the storm—will see a few light showers, but should be primarily dry. High temperatures will reach the upper 40s. Come Sunday, expect high winds with gusts reaching 50 to 60 mph. The surf should be high again as well. This weekend, avoid beaching, jetties and low-lying locations. The effects of Sunday’s showers linger into Monday before a break arrives Tuesday.
The Umpqua Valley has high temperatures in the upper 40s for Saturday. Skies will remain cloudy with a few sunbreaks seen. Much of the day is dry, though a few showers may pass overhead. Our next storm arrives on Sunday. With it are strong winds and widespread showers. Temperatures will hover around 50 degrees on Sunday. Drier weather will return Monday and Tuesday for Douglas County.
