Sunday’s Weather Discussion from Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton
A beautiful sunny Father’s Day for dads everywhere is leading into a nice night overall. Some clouds mixed in with clear skies and most of the thunderstorms that fired up in the late afternoon, should head north into the Northern Cascades. Winds are starting to shift to a southerly flow, thus lows will fall into the low 50s tonight and likely stay mild and kind of muggy the next couple of nights.
Monday we’ll see another day of mid to upper 70s with a “milky” sky- high clouds streaming in ahead of the next storm. The coast may see some drizzle throughout the morning, while more late afternoon thunderstorms are going to fire up in the Cascades. The best news is U. of O. commencement ceramonies should be dry and temps likely in the mid to upper 60s.
Tuesday through Thursday, the storm slowly shifts inland, bringing rain showers at times, sun breaks, and a cooler couple of days with highs back in the mid to upper 60s. Wednesday morning appears to be the wettest timeframe as the center of the storm will be moving through, and the mountains will see a chance for some light thunderstorms each day as well.
Thursday and into the weekend, high pressure takes hold once again, and we’re back to a summer forecast. Morning clouds and highs moving back into the mid to upper 70s! Oh, and the grass pollen will crank back up again!
Have a great Monday!
