KATU Weather Forecast

Sunday, December 21st 9 a.m.

KATU has declared a Breaking Weather Alert for heavy rain and potentially dangerous conditions this weekend.

Rain is winding down in the Valley to just some rain at times and scattered showers. Most of the heavy rain will continue in the higher elevations of the Cascades and the Coast Range. It should gradually taper back this afternoon, too.

Most coastal rivers crested early Sunday morning, but there are still Flood Warnings in place especially for the Clackamas River at Estacada and Oregon City, and the Sandy River.

Both of those rivers are forecast to crest around 4pm today.

Mild temperatures are part of this story, too, as we'll see mid and upper 50s for the Valley today. Someone tell "Mother Nature" it's the Winter Solstice today (3:03 pm).

A few showers linger into tomorrow, but our next rainy day will be Christmas Eve. Christmas Day looks drier, but cooler, too. Back to highs in the 40s.

Today - 58

Tonight - 44
