Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Nightly Forecast Discussion:
**Wildfire information: Oregon Wildfires ***
Lots of sunshine this afternoon and as a result, highs pushed back into the mid 80s in the valley. Still cloudy with some light offshore showers at the coast for the rest of the afternoon. Tonight, the coast will see a slight chance for some light showers, but inland, clouds will continue to thicken up overnight, however, most if not all locations should remain dry through Thursday morning.
Wednesday, more mostly sunny skies and highs back in the mid 80s. We’ll be in between fronts for most of the day with a slight chance for a passing shower after dinner along the coast. Late night into Thursday, a stronger batch of showers pushes inland and whatever doesn’t break up along the coast range, will bring a slight chance for some light showers in the afternoon for the valleys on Thursday. Friday goes back to dry for the inland valleys, the leftovers from the front keeps a few chances for showers along the coast.
The weekend will be a mixed bag as the low will move through the state, bringing more widespread shower chances and cooler temperatures. The good news is, it won’t move through until Sunday, it’s looking dry for both Ducks kickoff at 1pm and Beavers at Reser at 4pm. Additionally, it’ll be farily warm and muggy with highs in the low 80s and a steady SW wind above the surface bringing in plenty of moisture which will keep afternoon skies with a healthy dose of cloud cover.
Have a great Wednesday!
