Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
After taking a five day break from the 90s, it was right back up to 92° Sunday and Monday is looking just as warm, if not warmer. With high pressure as the driving force our skies are clear and the air is warm. The only place not likely to hit the 90s let alone the 70s is the Coast where on-shore flow and cloudy skies will keep things cool. For the central and southern Oregon Cascades, southern Oregon and Central Oregon thunderstorms are possible again later today.
A trough of low pressure will bring back on-shore flow for all of western Oregon starting Tuesday. This will drop temperatures about five degrees in the Valley. A weak disturbance will then increase cloud cover across the area Tuesday night and Wednesday which will drop us another five degrees to the low 80s and the Coast could even see some drizzle from this.
For the remainder of the week and through the weekend we’ll basically be in-between high pressure to the west of us and low pressure to the east. This means we’ll see fairly mild weather with morning clouds giving way to afternoon sunshine. Highs will stay in the low 80s Thursday and Friday then mid 80s for the weekend.
Have a great Monday!
