A dry Sunday, but more rain in the week ahead.
Monday another area of low pressure continues to develop in the Pacific and it will remain offshore. Models show it sending the vast majority of its energy into Southern and Southern Central Oregon with rain, wind and mountain snow expected. Driving conditions could be a little rough on Interstate 5, especially through the Siskiyous.
The Metro area will still get some showers out of the next system Monday, but it mainly stays west of the Cascades until Monday night when it swings into Central and Eastern Oregon.
Tuesday rain seems to be confined to the Coast. Expect blustery conditions at the Coast, too. That low will remain offshore as it tracks north toward the Olympic Peninsula and Vancouver Island. But that opens the door for the next low to swing up from the southwest on Wednesday. That area of low pressure will push more widespread rain into the region. Central and Northeastern Oregon will also see rain from this system.
Showers continue at times through the end of the week into the weekend.
Monday - Rain developing, getting windy at the Coast - 61
Tuesday - A few showers, a few degrees warmer - 64
Wednesday - Rain - 58
