Change in the Weather Coming This Weekend as Temperatures Drop


Cool and wet fall conditions are expected to arrive in the Lower Columbia Basin this weekend.

The National Weather Service (NWS) out of Pendleton forecasts a change in the weather pattern later this week as a strong frontal system will bring colder temperatures, breezy winds, possible rain, and snow in the higher elevations.

According to the NWS, mountainous regions will be the recipients of the first snowflakes of the season. Snow levels are expected to drop between 3,000-4,000 feet Saturday night and into Sunday morning. A cooling trend will continue through the remainder of the weekend.

High temperatures have been in the 70s and will continue through Thursday before temperatures drop as much as 15-20 degrees with highs in the 50s and 60s and overnight lows in the 20s and 30s in some areas of the Lower Columbia Basin. A chance of rain is forecast Saturday through Monday in the Umatilla County area.
