Break for OR Spring Break

Posted by Rufus La Lone on

Friday March 18
The Spring Equinox is Sunday.  We’ll also be in for a favorable change in the weather pattern just in time for Oregon Spring Break week.  Morn’n beverage refilled?
A cold, wet pattern will be the story for this weekend, as a new season begins.  Rain will start later tonight (Fri) in the north then spread across the PNW by Sat.  Snow levels will drop below the passes by Sunday; travelers be aware if heading over the mountains.  
Spring Break week has taken a positive change - as temperatures now look to jump into the 60s in many west side locations by Tue or Wed; teasing the low 70s in southern OR.  In fact, other than a few late-day showers over the far north corner of WA and/or Vancouver Is. on Monday, the region should enjoy a pleasant 4-5 days next week.  Parents will be pleased with this favorable break in the wet weather.
By late Fri Mar 25, the wx pattern will shift again into storm mode.  In fact, the storm now charting for Sat/Sun Mar 26,27 could be a decent wind producer, along with plenty of rain.  A double play may be in store, as a late Sunday storm could also bring on some wind & rain along with cooler temperatures.  
March will end with a couple of dry days before April arrives with moderate-to-heavy rainfall and breezy conditions.  Mountain snowpack will continue to build, as well.
