Friday morning rain signals the big change in Eastern WA & OR’s weather pattern for this weekend -Briana

A big change in the weather pattern as cloudy skies and rain began Friday morning! Rain will be steady through the first part of the day. Breezy and tapering showers Friday evening. Overnight lows in the upper 40’s to mid 50’s. Expect scattered showers overnight until midday Friday with breezy to gusty afternoon winds and temperatures in the upper 50’s to low 60’s. Rain showers will be intermittent through Sunday. There is an increased risk of Flash Flooding and debris flows in creeks and streams in the Cascades and Blues in recently burned areas.
