Justin’s Wednesday Night Forecast Discussion:
Tropical Storm Isaac has formed in the Eastern Caribbean Sea. Forecast tracks possibly put it in the Eastern Gulf of Mexico early next week. Details on track and intensity is here from the National Hurricane Center: ISAAC
The next two days will keep the steady stream of pleasant late August weather coming. Starting off cool both Thursday and Friday in the upper 40s and low 50s, we’ll keep sunny skies overall and mid to upper 70s. A few disturbances will move across the Northwest but they shouldn’t be strong enough to bring more than some coastal drizzle at times.
By the weekend, we’ll see a bit of a jump back to near 80 Friday and likely low to mid 80s on Saturday. Both days of Eugene Celebration should stay cool to start and sunny finishes, and dry!
A stronger system on Sunday will increase the clouds and sit offshore for about a day into Monday. However, it MAY bring a rain chance by Tuesday. The trend tonight is to pull the whole system north of Oregon which would give us morning clouds and that’s it. Still some time to iron that out so we’ll wait and see.
Have a great Thursday!
