Tuesday’s Weather Discussion from Meteorologist Melissa Frey:
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 for the rest of the week.
The one change for today is the marine layer that has been forming along the coast, under on-shore flow, has made its way east of the Coast Range and into the valley. This kept us warm overnight, but should break up this afternoon, revealing sunny skies overhead. Highs will climb to the mid 70s inland and mid to 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. The area of low pressure that is responsible for these thunderstorms is slowly making its way east.
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. It’s not that impressive of a storm though and we should get back to sunny warm weather by Tuesday.
Have a great day!
