Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
A great looking evening in store tonight even with some leftover thunderstorms in the Southern Cascades, mostly clear skies for most of the night with morning clouds making their arrival back around dawn. Lows tonight will fall into the mid 40s.
Most of the week will look pretty spectacular with highs slowly climbing into the mid to upper 70s and low 80s for the Umpqua. However, tomorrow some sections of the Cascades, mainly on the eastern slopes, will see a second day of thunderstorms firing up in the afternoon. The low responsible for the storms will have drifted into California by midweek, high pressure offshore will ensure a break from the rain of this past weekend. Mostly sunny skies through Friday.
Heading into the holiday weekend though, some changes may be in store. There’s a lot of variability from Saturday through Memorial Day in terms of when and if showers will return. As of tonight, I’ll throw in a mention of some lightly scattered showers Saturday and Sunday. Memorial Day is looking like a wet one for now, but we’ll keep a close watch on where the next storm forms and how that will affect your weekend plans.
Have a great Monday night!
