Monday April 18
Damp week ahead. What about the weekend? Read on.
Overall pattern this week will present periodic chilly rain and/or showers across the entire PNW. There will be short breaks, but not enough to dry out the land and bring on a sense of Spring. Temperatures will linger in the upper 40s - with a few exceptions around 52F - through Thu. By Fri, it should dry out and begin to warm up several degrees.
The coming weekend doesn’t look too bad in regards to temperature (60s west side & lower Columbian basin), but there will be additional precip, esp from Salem north into BC., although not as wet as the week before. Cool damp pattern will repeat again to start the last week of April with on/off rain showers through mid-week. The break that is modeled to arrive by Thu Apr 28 should finally bring back Spring - with lots of sunshine, warm afternoons and for a couple of days.
While there may be a chance to dry out well-drained soils, another weak system could work its way in from the SW over the weekend of Apr 30-May 1. Temps will remain on the mild side, with most of the heavier precip targeting the central/southern Cascades and the east side. The Willamette Valley & Puget Sound could pick about 0.1"- 0.2”, all told.
Early May is trending mixed, with some rain, some sunshine. We all patiently await a week or more of dry Spring weather.
