The region continues to dry out today
A weak ridge of high pressure will help the region dry out today from the weekend rain. There's still a lot of water draining into area rivers, and with a high tide slated for 1pm today, still flooding concerns at the coast.
A Coastal Flood Advisory will be in place through 4pm today. Water has been over Highway 101 in Tillamook and Highway 126 in Florence.
A few showers have been lingering over parts of the Valley and Cascades through the early morning, but they will gradually come to an end.
The region should stay mostly cloudy today. Another system will move in late tonight for more showers tomorrow morning. Our next round of widespread significant rain will be on Wednesday, Christmas Eve. Christmas Day will be drier and cooler.
Today - 54
Tonight - 45
