Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
A beautiful sunny afternoon is turning into a nice, clear evening as high pressure continues to keep us under a quiet and calm spring forecast. Tonight, skies will stay mostly clear until early Thursday morning when the low clouds will re-form. Lows tonight, again very comfortable, in the mid to upper 40s.
Thursday will be the last day of the really sunny weather and highs in the upper 70s and low 80s in the Umpqua. Friday a weak cold front will clip the edge of Western Oregon. While most of the region likely will stay dry, I’ll add a mention of some isolated showers in the afternoon and evening, mainly for the northern half of the state and Cascades.
Heading into the holiday weekend though, some changes may be in store. Cloudy for sure but the models are trending for the storms to weaken considerably as they approach the coastline both Saturday and Sunday. Memorial Day is looking like the strongest day in terms of showers and rain coverage, but even then, they’ll be light. Cooler as well into the holiday with highs falling back into the low 70s to mid 60s.
Have a great Wednesday night!
