Happy Spring! It’s too bad the weather is turning colder just as the new season begins. There is sunshine in the forecast though, so cheer up.

An upper level high pressure ridge (shaded “Arch”shape) has moved eastward enough for an upper level low that’s next in line to bring back the chance of rain. A complex complex frontal system has returned the stream of moisture pouring into Oregon and dropping snow levels below the passes bringing the “Spring Rain.” Spring officially began with the “Vernal Equinox” at 4:02 AM today.

Because weather forecasting is a combination of science, intuition, and timing there can be no absolute guarantees that individual forecasts will be 100% accurate. Nature is in a constant state of flux and sudden unexpected weather events can happen.
