We’re waking up cloudy skies and light flurries in the Portland-metro area and in the Columbia Gorge. Parts of Washington may see spotty freezing rain or light snow flurries this morning as a weak weather system brushes by. The air mass is certainly cold enough for light snow with temperatures in the upper 20’s and lower 30’s.
The good news, temperatures will warm up enough this afternoon for a return to rain in western Washington. Western Oregon should expect scattered snow showers this afternoon.
Highs will range from the low 20’s to upper 30’s.
Expect gradual warming over the next few days. Late Wednesday a milder storm arrives with a chance of a rain/snow mix, changing over to rain. Keep in mind; a light wintry mix including freezing rain will impact parts of interior Oregon and Washington late Thursday into Friday, especially in the lower valleys.
