Monday’s Weather Discussion from Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton
So nice to see some cooler weather re-enter the picture this week! Today’s high of only 73 tied the coolest afternoon we’ve seen since May 31. Tonight, it’ll cool off fast under clear skies, fans headed to Goss for the Beavers rubber match with Kansas State will be cool in the upper 50s by late innings. The low clouds will move back in overnight and lows will settle down into the mid 40s.
The hot high pressure forecast we were locked into last week is quickly being replaced by a trough of low pressure bringing cooler air for the first time this month. Highs for the next couple of days will be well below normal, in the mid to upper 60s in the valley, low 70s in the Umpqua. In addition, the morning clouds are back and as the center of the low swings inland, we may even see some occasional showers squeezing out Wednesday at the coast and inland on Thursday. Any showers that fall will be light overall and won’t do much to wash off the pollen or cut into our 15″+ deficit for rainfall.
By the weekend, highs return to the mid and upper 70s, but that’s it. There’s a slight chance for some mountain thunderstorms Saturday and Sunday with a storm spinning offshore, but it’s too early to tell if it’ll bring any to the valleys. So overall, a very pleasant week is on tap for mid-June!
Have a great Tuesday!
