KATU Weather Forecast

Friday October 24  5:20 AM

Active, wet weather will continue into the weekend.

But first... a break from the rain is in progress this morning. Skies will remain mostly cloudy with a chance of mist or drizzle. Daytime highs will be near 60 degrees. Another storm system approaches the area this afternoon. Expect steady rain to begin around the evening commute. Rain continues at times tonight with overnight lows near 50 degrees.

Tomorrow, rain will fall at times. However, I don't believe there will be as much precipitation as the last big storm. Wind gusts may become a concern for the metro area by afternoon Watch out for stronger wind gusts near 35 miles per hour. Coastal residents will see wind gusts near 60 miles per hour overnight and into the morning hours.

Sunday's forecast will remain mostly cloudy with a chance of showers. Daytime highs will be in the upper 50s.  The mountain snow level is also likely to drop to near the mountain passes- some of you may see a few snowflakes at 4500 feet!
