There will still be a slight chance of getting wet today and tonight, but your Monday should be dry. Don’t get too excited about sunshine and dry weather because the rain will be back Tuesday.

An upper level trough of low pressure (Shaded “U” shape) is moving through the Pacific Northwest sending storms our way.  A frontal system pushed through bringing more clouds and precipitation to the Pacific Northwest and colder temperatures. A complex frontal system will continue the stream of moisture pouring into Oregon midweek keeping the nearly “Spring Rain” falling.

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.
