That wasn’t real exciting…just some light rain this afternoon for most of us. But some spots of freezing rain on the west side of the Willamette Valley. Had a few reports of freezing rain in McMinnville, Lafayette, Dayton, and some other patches in western Washington county.
As you see on the radar, rain of any sort is about to end as our weak weather system moves on east.
The issue tonight may be the usual case of skies partially clearing behind a cold front; probably only on the west side of the valley again. Since temps are within a few notches of freezing, any clearing means icy spots could easily develop on roads in those areas…be careful out there later tonight!\
I don’t see a widespread warming southerly wind tonight, but some spots will randomly pop up temp-wise. I see some mid 40s over on the SE side of the metro area where southerly wind has arrived. The rest of us stay in the 30s tonight.
