More rain arrives this weekend for Western Oregon—a lot of it. Rain totals for everyone will range between 0.75-2.00”. Though the weekend will not be an entire washout. Both Saturday and Sunday afternoon may pick up a few dry and overcast hours before another wave of heavy downpours rolls in from the Pacific Ocean.
The coast gets most of the rain from our next to storms moving through on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday should see around an 1.00” for most locations and potentially another 1.25” on Sunday. Most of these showers fall in a few short hours during the night and morning. A Flood Watch is in effect for Coos and Curry county until 10pm on Monday. Temperatures this weekend will be in the lower 50s with morning lows in the lower 40s. Come Monday afternoon, drier weather returns and will stick around for a couple days.
Inland areas, while not seeing as much rain as the coast, will still pick up quite a bit of rainfall. Precipitation totals on Saturday will sit between 0.75-1.00”, with another 0.50-1.00” falling on Sunday. Winds will be gusty at times, but mostly with the arrival of each round of rain. High temperatures on Saturday will be in the lower 50s and will cool to the mid 40s by Sunday. A few showers are possible early Monday, but in general, next week will see drier weather and more sun breaks.
