Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Evening Forecast Discussion:
A great sunny afternoon for Wednesday, with clear skies expected for the remainder of the night tonight. Cooler air has been spilling in with the trough the last two days so we’ll see the chilliest night in quite some time tonight. Lows will be cooler as well, falling into the mid to low 40s. Freeze warnings are up for the Southern Cascades already!
Thursday will likely be summer’s last stand with southerly winds and sunshine warming the afternoon up to the upper 70s and low 80s. The coast will see the winds pick up ahead of a big game-changer in the weather for the next few days.
Fall arrives a few days early with what looks to be our first good storm of the season Friday evening. Most of Friday afternoon should stay dry but high school football will likely be a little wet. A strong cold front blasts into the coast bringing a soggy and breezy end to summer with showers expected on and off throughout the weekend. Another strong front hits on Sunday evening and even looking into next week, more storms are lined up for what will be a showery and cool start to Fall.
Have a great Friday!
