Hello weekend! Hello rain!
A storm currently moving through the Pacific Northwest will keep Saturday on the cool, cloud and wet side of things. Showers will be most common and heaviest in the morning and to the north. As the day moves forward, we’ll see rain to taper and skies to clear. Those heading to Corvallis for the Beaver’s game a 1pm should expect a couple raindrops and temperatures in the mid 60s. The Duck’s game a 5pm will be a degree or two warmer and likely not see any rainfall.
Saturday for the coast will stay gray with showers most common in the morning. Afternoon temperatures will hover in the middle 60s. Come Sunday, skies will break to allow some sunshine—though not much. Temperatures will remain in the 60s. Next workweek however should begin to see blue skies and upper 60s and lower 70s for the coast.
Inland spots will have to contend with rain on Saturday with lower 70s for daytime highs. However Sunday will see less cloud cover, no rain, and highs in the upper 60s. As we progress through next week, sunshine will dominate the sky more thoroughly and temperatures will warm. The Willamette Valley may top out in the lower 80s by Wednesday. In Douglas county, Wednesday might close to 90.
