Thursday’s Weather Discussion from Meteorologist Melissa Frey:
Another beautiful day in paradise! With not much changing in the atmospheric patterns overhead, our weather is going to continue to be unseasonably warm, dry and sunny. Thanks to high pressure dominating the entire Pacific Northwest, we’ll stay storm free through Saturday.
Highs will climb to the mid 70s inland and low 60s along the coast Thursday. High pressure will peak on Friday which will bring up temperatures to the low 80s inland.
A few thundershowers are still possible this afternoon and evening and on Friday across the higher elevations of the Cascades and in southern Oregon. The area of low pressure that is responsible for these thunderstorms is continuing to move east.
Temperatures will stay in the upper 70s under mostly sunny skies through Saturday, but by Sunday we’ll see some changes. Temperatures will drop and we’ll see a chance at some rain as a cold front moves through. It’s not that impressive of a storm though and we should get back to sunny warm weather for Tuesday and Wednesday.
Have a great day!
