Tuesday’s Weather Discussion from Meteorologist Melissa Frey:
The first six days of May have been above average temperature-wise and below average rainfall-wise, and that trend isn’t changing anytime soon. High pressure is dominating the entire Pacific Northwest, keeping us storm free for the rest of the week.
We’ll continue to see on-shore flow, keeping the coast under the marine layer and cooler, but the Valley and Cascades are under clear skies. Highs will climb to the mid 70s inland and upper 50s along the coast.
A few thundershowers are still possible this afternoon and evening across the higher elevations of the Cascades and in southern Oregon.
Temperatures will stay in the mid to upper 70s and low 80s under mostly sunny skies through Saturday. By Sunday we should see a drop in the temperatures and a chance at some rain as a cold front moves through.
Have a great Tuesday!
