Wednesday’s Weather Discussion from Meteorologist Melissa Frey:
The much talked about cool down is here! Tuesday was the first day this month that we saw below average temperatures and we’re going to be even cooler Wednesday and Thursday. The first raindrops of the month are also on the way!
An area of low pressure is moving in from Vancouver Island. Low pressure always spins counter-clockwise, this pulls in the cold air from the northern Pacific along with moisture off the ocean. That combination is then brought in over western Oregon.
Today most of the action is closer to the storm, across western Washington. We’ll see mostly cloudy skies though and highs in the mid 60s.
When the storm moves closer Thursday, we’ll see scattered showers for most of western Oregon. This will also be our coolest day this week highs staying at about 65° in Eugene.
By Friday we’ll be in the clear from this storm and we’ll see high pressure rebound just in time for many graduations and Father’s day Weekend. Friday and Saturday are looking mostly sunny with highs in the mid 70s.
By Sunday we’ll see another area of low pressure moving in from the south. This will bring back the clouds, chances for thunder storms and possible rain by Monday.
Have a great day!
