The next storm will start pushing into the state over the next 24-36 hours and will bring rain, clouds and cooler temperatures with it. Rain will start on the coast first, but inland locations will get it shortly after. Heading into the weekend more rain is on the way as well.
The Willamette Valley should expect mostly cloudy skies tonight and through our Thursday. Most of tomorrow will be dry but a few isolated showers are possible. High temperatures will manage to be in the upper 50s and lower 50swhich is above average for this time of year. Cooler weather begins to settle into the area on Friday and the weekend. Friday will be in the mid 50s with rain around the area. Saturday should expect lower 50s with a few hit or miss rain. By Sunday another round of widespread showers will arrive.
The Oregon Coast will have rain over the next few days. Thursday however, will only see a few isolated rain showers with most of the coast staying dry. High temperatures will warm to the lower 60s again. By Friday widespread, and at times heavy, rain will push overhead. Skies will stay cloud and temperatures will cool to the mid 50s. The weekend is also facing mid 50s with clouds and rain. This weekend Sunday will be wetter than Saturday.
The Umpqua Valley is expecting partly cloudy skies in the lower 60 for Thursday. A few isolated showers are possible, but the chances are very small. Meaning it is likely most of the region will stay dry. Friday will have mostly cloudy skies and widespread showers rain. Temperatures will begin to dropping this weekend. Mid to upper 50s are expected on both Saturday and Sunday. With luck Saturday will not see and showers, but Sunday should be picking up more rain as a second push of moisture moves in to the state from the ocean.
