KATU Weather Forecast

Thursday, August 27, 2015

Get ready for fall like weather in August.

Fair skies will begin the evening but clouds will be on the increase overnight. A trough of low pressure is spinning up and tracking toward Oregon and Washington.  Rain should arrive on the Oregon Coast in the mid-morning hours.  The storm front will  briefly stall along the ocean beaches. Skies should be mainly dry during the day Friday in the Willamette Valley

I don

t expect the main bands of rain to arrive until Friday evening. Once the main system arrives wet weather can be expected through much of the weekend.  Locally up to .50" of rain is possible, an inch or more can be expected on the coast and Cascades.  A high wind watch has been posted for the coast starting tomorrow afternoon. Wind gusts could top 60 miles an hour.

If you're running the Hood to Coast Relay expect very sloppy and windy conditions in the Coast Range and as you near Seaside on Saturday.


Tonights low 63

Fridays high 76
