Rain is on the way for western Oregon. Showers currently over the Pacific Ocean will swing through in the early hours of Friday. Sometime between 7am and 10am. Locations to the west will see rain earlier than eastern locations. Rain—initially—will be light and widespread. Come the afternoon showers will break apart and create an off-an-on environment for rain. Temperatures should reach the middle 50s for everyone.
On Saturday, we’ll dry out. The morning may have some lingering raindrops from Friday, but by the afternoon dry weather should settle overhead. No much warming is expected with high temperatures in the mid to upper 50s. Clouds will persist throughout the weekend, even on Sunday.
At the point, it looks as though Sunday is the driest day on the forecast. Oregon will find itself between two storms as we wrap up the weekend. Highs on Sunday should warm to around 60 degrees, some areas maybe reaching the lower 60s. But sunshine won’t be too pronounced. Instead expect mostly cloudy skies and dry weather to round out the weekend.
The following storm is due to hit sometime early next week. Monday seems to be the prime day, but it wouldn’t be too surprising to see the rain shift backwards by 12 hours or so, making the storm more of a Monday night into Tuesday morning event. Those details will be hammered out over the weekend.
