Thursday’s storm that brought Oregon strong winds, cloudy skies, and heavy downpours will be repeated by another storm on Friday that will likely bring more of the same. The last day of the workweek will have to endure high rain accumulations over half an inch for most areas, and winds that will continue to gust into the 40s for the coast and 30s for inland valleys.
Oregon’s coast should begin Friday will gray skies overhead and a few showers around the region. All around the morning starts off relatively quiet. It is in the afternoon and evening when we see the next storm really begin to impact the coast. Rain accumulations Friday afternoon into Saturday morning will range around an inch. High temperatures on Friday will be in the middle 50s. Saturday and Sunday will see mid 50s as well with more rain. In fact, both Saturday and Sunday may pick up another 0.50-1.00” of rain each. Dry weather should return by Monday.
Inland areas will not have as much rain as the coast, but still expect rain totals around a half inch on Friday. Then another 0.5-0.75” on both Saturday and Sunday. Friday’s winds will not be as strong as Thursday’s gusts—but a few blustery hours will still be seen in the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will remain in the mid to upper 40s through Sunday. Drier weather will settle back over the area on Monday.
