Coldest night tonight with freezing temperatures expected!

That east wind is noticeable now, especially with the temperatures in the upper 30s which makes it feel like about 30 out there! The winds will continue today and tonight, high today near 50 and then the low tonight in the mid 20s to low 30s but with the wind the windchill will be in the teens. This is all compliments of a cold high pressure area that is sliding to out northeast but some of that cold air is blowing through the Gorge and into the valley then continuing over the Coast Range to the coast. Tomorrow the winds decrease so the temperatures start to moderate tomorrow night with the lows 30 to 35 then Thursday, we start out with some sun but then the clouds move in along with a threat of rain as the ridge weakens allowing a series of weak disturbances to ride over the top of the ridge into Friday and Saturday. As for the long range models, although there is some confusion in the models, they appear to suggest another cold east wind setting up the beginning of next week. Until then the highs run 50-55 with lows 45-50.
