We start the week for scattered rain showers and snow showers in the highest hills around Western Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Scattered showers will move through the valley at times. This morning's snow level is just around 1000 feet. Snow showers will also continue at times in the Coast Range, Gorge and Cascade Foothills at this level. However, the metro area is fairly quiet with only a few showers this morning. Expect 4 to 8 inches of snow in the Cascades in the frequent showers today. Daytime highs will be in the mid 40s.
Tonight, expect scattered showers to continue. Overnight lows will drop to the mid 30s. The same pattern sticks around for tomorrow. However, a ridge of high pressure will push the storm track north of us on Wednesday and provide dry weather for a day. Rain resumes on Thursday. Highs will remain below normal this week- generally in the upper 40s. (Normal high for PDX in late March is 54 degrees)
