TOMORROW: We will start out mostly cloudy skies and 40% chance of showers and patchy dense fog with overnight lows in the low 50s. In the afternoon we will see mostly cloudy skies continue with a 80% chance of showers as moisture continues to rotate around high pressure over Baja moves over the region with afternoon highs in the low 60s and light winds out of the South. We will see between 1/4th to ½ inch of Rain by the end of the day.
THANKSGIVING: The next cold front approaches the coast Wednesday night and moves through the forecast area midday on Thanksgiving. Snow levels will remain high initially with this system. The front will move east of the Cascades later in the day on Thanksgiving. There will be a fair amount of showers in onshore flow behind the front Thursday night with snow levels lowering to near Cascade pass elevations overnight, and the greatest coverage and intensity over the Cascades and the coastal mountains. The models indicate that showers will continue into Friday, but there could be some drying in the south part of the area, from about Salem southward, by afternoon. Rainfall totals through Friday could reach 3-6 inches in the Cascades and in the coastal mountains (heaviest amounts in the north), with 0.5-1.5 inches in the valleys.
