There are lots of showers roaming around the region as expected this afternoon.  A cool and unstable airmass is overhead; dumping small areas of very heavy rain and leaving others with just a few sprinkles.

Here are the totals as of 3pm in the northern Willamette Valley & metro area


But in between those official stations some spots have been under a deluge at times. Tillamook and Yamhill counties have been very wet, along with Pacific and Cowlitz counties up in Washington

This showers & sunbreaks pattern continues Wednesday then the showers back off Thursday and Friday.  The bad news is that the weekend appears to be showery as well, especially Saturday.

If you have an outdoor event that can’t get wet Saturday?  Get a tent or find a covered area.  Sorry, but that happens sometimes in September.
