Explore the Pacific Northwest with this holiday weekend- valley weather will cooperate!


The pesky upper-level low pressure area over the Mountain West that is causing all of the storminess moves farther east today. Valley residents will see cloudy skies continue into the afternoon. There will be limitied sun breaks. However, the area forecast looks drier over the holiday weekend.  Daytime highs will be in the upper 60s.  Overnight lows will drop to the 40s.

Traveling to Eastern Oregon today? There is a Flash Flood Watch posted through evening in the Eastern Oregon mountains and John Day Highlands. Heavy downpours are likely with today's thunderstorms in that area.

Tomorrow, skies will remain mostly cloudy. Daytime highs will stay just below normal- around 65 degrees. The rest of the Memorial Day weekend will be dry and partly cloudy in the afternoon. Daytime highs will in the low 70s. Have a great weekend.
