Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Nightly Forecast Discussion:
The countdown to the start of Fall is officially underway and this week, we’ll see a mix of Fall, along with possbily summer’s lasts stand. Tonight, another wave of clouds will move through Western Oregon bringing some isolated showers early Tuesday morning. Most folks won’t see any rain until you get into the mountains. Tuesday will start cloudy with lows in the mid 50s.
There’s a good chance for a flare up of thunderstorms early Tuesday across the Cascades, moving eastward. Meanwhile, light isolated showers will taper off through the afternoon for most of our area. Highs with some afternoon sun breaks, will be in the upper 60s.
A nice quick-building high pressure ridge brings back the sunshine and warmer weather Wednesday afternoon and all day Thursday. Highs will move back into the 70s Wednesday and low 80s by Thursday! With clear skies overnight Wednesday, we should get a great shot of the Harvest Moon.
Fall arrives a few days early with what looks to be our first good storm of the season Friday afternoon. A strong cold front blasts into the coast bringing a soggy and breezy end to summer with showers expected on and off throughout the weekend.
Have a great Tuesday!
