KATU Weather Forecast

Tuesday  November 24, 2015

A cold and dry pattern returns. Very windy near the gorge too.

The last of the showers from a fast moving cold front are headed out of the region tonight. Skies will remain dry over the next few days. If skies clear during the overnight hours temperatures will plunge. 

Roads that remain wet this evening could turn icy by Wednesday morning. That could cause a major headache for everybody trying to get out of town on one of the busiest travel days of the year.  Some parts of the Willamette Valley might also have to deal with fog or freezing fog during the early morning hours. Skies will clear late morning but afternoon highs will only reach the lower to middle 40s.

Our weather pattern is switching back to dry, cold and windy. East wind coming out of the Columbia River Gorge will reach 30 to 50mph later this week. Overnight lows in wind sheltered areas will drop into the middle 20s. The pattern will likely continue through the middel of next week.

Tonight's low 32

Wednesday's high 45
