Your Monday will be wet, but the winds and amount of precipitation (rain or snow) will slowly diminish as the week progresses.

The leading edge of a high pressure ridge (shaded “Arch” shape) is giving us a strong northwesterly airflow that has brought colder air our way. A frontal system is moving through oregon carrying more moisture to us. This frontal system will approach the Pacific Coast Wednesday increasing rain chances again. For skiers Mt. Ashland and Hoodoo are open and Willamette Pass is still waiting for more snow and hopes to open soon.
