Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
A slight dip in the jet stream is bringing in cool air to the Pacific Northwest. Overnight lows dropped into the 40s under clear skies in the Willamette Valley. A few clouds developed just before sunrise from the Coast to the Cascades, but will break up rather quickly and we’ll be back to sunny skies for the second half of the day. High temperatures will stay cool though, only making into the up upper 70s for the valley, near 80 for Roseburg and mid 60s for the coast.
Friday will also be sunny but cool, but we’ll warm up some for the weekend.
A slight ridge of high pressure moves in Friday night. This will keep us under sunny skies Saturday and bring temperatures back into the low to mid 80s for Saturday and Sunday.
A storm is tracking to arrive just off shore Sunday. This will reinforce the marine layer and keep us cloudy Sunday morning. The coast could even see some light drizzle early in the day.
Morning clouds will stick with us Monday and Tuesday as well and highs will stay in the upper 70s. By Wednesday this storm starts to move inland, which if holds would bring in extra cloud cover, give a the first chance at isolated showers since mid July and keep our temperatures in the 70s.
Have a great Thursday!
