METEOROLOGIST MARISA WOLOSZYN’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Although summer doesn’t start until 5 a.m. UTC on June 21, the meteorological summer starts June 1 and continues through August 31. Summer-like weather is in store for the start of the meteorological summer.
Mostly clear skies overnight caused a chilly start for our Friday; morning lows dipped into the low 40s.
High pressure will be in control starting today. We’ll see plenty of sunshine by the afternoon with highs in the low 70s in the valley, upper 70s in the Umpqua Basin and low 60s along the coast. The weather will be nearly the same Saturday.
The marine clouds will push in Saturday nigh with onshore flow. Sunday will start off cloudy and foggy, which will clear out by the afternoon. Highs will still be in the 70s inland and 60s along the coast.
A thermal trough is going to form along the Pacific Coast, we won’t see much influence Monday but Tuesday and Wednesday temperatures will soar. The thermal trough will bring very warm air up the coastline and into our area; temps will climb into the upper 60s along the coast, low 80s for the valley and upper 80s for the Umpqua Basin.
Have a Fantastic Friday!
