An Upper Level High Pressure Ridge was keeping the precipitation away, but allowed late night/Early AM temperatures still below normal. The days 1-3 graphic shows the frontal system that will bring possibly heavy rainfall to the Pacific Northwest today and Wednesday (up to 3 in. of rain possible). With cold air already at the surface the warm air that is approaching will ride over the cold air producing morning freezing again the worst of which will be in the Portland area. An Upper Level Low Pressure Trough (Shaded “U” shape with blue arrows on first graphic) will help return the advance of frontal systems with precipitation. The graphic for days 3-7 shows more frontal systems heading our way Friday and Sunday into Monday of next week. For mountain snow conditions at the local ski areas check out their websites or give them a call.

The Upper level low pressure (Shaded “U” shape with blue arrows) that send moisture our way and its associated surface system are being replaced for a short time by high pressure.  The days 1-3 graphic shows the surface lows and frontal systems that tried to bring rain and snow to us. Other parts of the Pacific Northwest specifically to our North (15.5 in. of snow at Portland West Hills/Forest Heights.) did see the snow, but not in the South Willamette Valley. The graphic for days 3-7 shows no slowdown in frontal systems that will be headed our way through next week. For mountain snow conditions at the local ski areas check out their websites or give them a call.
