Hot Summer Weekend Ahead

Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Thursday Night Forecast Discussion: 

Highs climbed back up into the upper 80s today with Roseburg hitting 90 for the first time in a few days and that’ll be the trend over the next couple of days as hot, high pressure noses back into the Pacific Northwest. Tonight, clear skies inland with some patchy coastal clouds overnight, lows falling into the mid to low 50s and just a shallow morning cloud deck inland to start Friday.

Friday highs will be likely in the low 90s widespread inland with coastal spots hitting close to 70 under sunny, clear skies. Saturday and Sunday will also be warm, possibly a touch cooler with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 and still sunny most if not all of the day. High pressure from the Rockies will push hot, dry air across the state and with the jetstream moving back up into Western Canada, we’ll only see a weak on-shore push of clouds in the morning and sunshine the rest of the day.

Early next week, the jetstream flattens out a tad, increasing the onshore push but it won’t really knock temperatures down that much so expect to see upper 80s to near 90 Monday through about Thursday. Midweek, we’ll be on the watch for some mountain thunderstorms in the afternoons.

Have a great Friday!
