Wet weather will diminish briefly for Thursday before another round of rain and winds hit on Friday. Temperatures, in general, will be cooler than Wednesday due to weaker winds from the south. Rainfall this weekend remains possible as more moisture streams in from the Pacific.
The Willamette Valley will see highs on Thursday at or just below average for the middle of January. Reaching the upper 40s for many locations. Some rain in the morning will break and end for a good portion of the day. Come the evening, rain returns and will persist into Friday. Highs on Friday will drop a few degrees—to the upper 40s—and rain will become more widespread. Looking at the weekend, expect mid 40s with more clouds and rain.
The Oregon Coast should be wet on Thursday, but not as wet—or as windy—as what was seen Wednesday. Showers will remain present, but broken with plenty of dry hours. Highs should end up in the lower 50s. Come Friday, another round of rain and wind is on the way with temperatures dropping to the 40s. Even this weekend remains wet, but sunshine may appear on the coast for the little of next week.
The Umpqua Valley should pick up a few breaks in rain on Thursday. The morning and evening will probably end up wet, but the middle of the day could be without the rain. High temperatures should be around 50 degrees. Come the weekend, upper 40s are possible with a few showers. Overnight temperatures will return to the mid 30s, but should stay above freezing. Next week sunshine might appear in the middle of the day.
