Showers and mild temperatures will finally take over all of Western Oregon and Southwest Washington.
With only a few National Weather Service Warnings or advisories left around the Pacific Northwest, we've dropped our Storm Tracker Weather Alert. Life returns to normal for the rest of this week in the weather department. Expect scattered showers today and temperatures landing in the upper 40s and possible low 50s away from the Gorge. There is still a threat for the showers in the Central Gorge to spread patchy freezing rain- thus a Freezing Rain Advisory remains posted there and the Southwest Washington Cascades. Today's snow level during the showers is around 4500 feet. The Oregon and Washington Cascades will see light snow fall near the mountain pass level at times today.
Tonight, showers will decrease. Overnight lows will stay in the mid to upper 30s. Another storm system will increase our chance for steady rain by morning. However, amounts are looking light- as the main storm track will be focused on Northern California. Light rain or showers will continue over the weekend with a possible drying trend ahead by the middle of next week. Daytime highs return to our normal range in the mid to upper 40s.
