A Split Weekend...Now Comes The Wet, Cool, Windy Half...
Some sunshine and mild high temperatures for the first half of the weekend, 56 for a high in Portland, 58 in Salem, 61 in Bend.
The clouds started rolling in later in the day, and they'll be bringing rain overnight.
For Portland and the metro area the wettest part of the day will be before noon, and the rain could be heavy at times with a cold front passing through.
Showers and cooler air will follow the front, and high temperatures will only be around 50. It will stay cooler for Monday as well.
Expect snow levels Sunday to come down from about 4,000' to 3,000' through the day. That means it will be down to the passes. Mountain areas could see 3-6" or more up higher from this storm. There's a Winter Weather Advisory for the Cascades until 10:00pm Sunday.
Rainfall amounts for the Valley look to total around a 1/4 of an inch...maybe more in any heavy downpours.
If you're heading to the Coast this weekend, we're expecting a strong swell with this storm. A HIGH SURF ADVISORY will be in effect from 10 a.m. Sunday morning until Midnight. Watch for sneaker waves.
It will be breezy to windy as well as with afternoon gusts around 30mph west of the Cascades. East of the the Cascades there's a Wind Advisory with gusts up to 50mph possible.
Wind will calm down Monday, but we'll see a few showers still lingering, and it may wind up to be the coldest day of the week, in the upper 40s.
Drier for the rest of the week, with temperatures working into the low 60's by the end of the work week.
