Think It's Been Cold? Brace Yourself For Colder Weather

Nov 29, 2013

This weekend is expected to end with a storm followed by a cold snap. Overnight lows are forecast to drop into the teens next week.

Rain and wind are expected to hit late Sunday in the Pacific Northwest. If you're traveling over the Cascades and coast range Sunday, National Weather Service meteorologist Matthew Cullen says be prepared for heavy rain.

Cullen: "But we do think it will stay rain until very late Sunday evening. If you're driving back Monday definitely some accumulating snow is very possible so definitely be aware and be alert for those conditions."

Arctic air is expected to move into Oregon by Monday evening. Cullen says there may be a mix of snow and rain in lower elevations. Much colder temperatures are expected next week across the state.
