Look for lots of clouds, peeks of sunshine, and a good chance of showers today.

An upper level high pressure ridge (shaded “Arch”shape) has moved eastward so an upper level low (shaded “U” shape) can take over bringing back the rain. A complex complex frontal system has returned the stream of moisture and colder air 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.
