The rain is here to stay for a little while longer across Western Oregon. Onshore airflow from the north Pacific will keep our skies gray and temperatures chilly. Moisture continues to stream into the state from the ocean as well which will keep conditions wet for a day or two longer.
The Willamette Valley’s Wednesday is as gray as every day the workweek has seen so far. High temperatures will likely be the coolest we’ll see before conditions slowly warm. Highs will stay below 60 degrees for most locations. Rain will start light and spotty in the morning, but become heavier and more widespread I the afternoon. Rain totals for the day should vary between 0.20” to 0.60”. Thursday will not see as many showers, but they’ll remain present. Highs Thursday will return to the lower 60s and by Friday should end up in the mid 60s. Friday—at this point—appears dry. Sunshine fills the sky again this weekend with 70s returning.
The Oregon Coast will see plenty of rain over the next few days. Wednesday’s highs should be chilly and only in the mid to upper 50s. A blustery winds will blow along the shoreline from the northwest. Rain remains present for a good majority of the day. Showers will begin light but end the day heavy in nature. Thursday will have more rain as well, but not as much. Highs will get close to hitting 60 for most areas. Come Friday mid 60s are possible with only a few light sprinkles here and there. Sunshine returns for the weekend.
The Umpqua Valley has a fair amount of rain on the way for the remainder of the week. Wednesday will probably be the coolest and wettest day of the week. Highs are not expected to easily high 60 degrees. Skies should remain gray and rain will fall for most of the day. Thursday should return to the lower 60s with rain persisting over the area. Friday is when skies start to part and rain slowly ends. Friday’s highs may see a few spots hit 70 degrees. By the weekend mid to upper 70s are possible with plenty of sunshine.
