Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
Wednesday is going to be a rinse and repeat kind of day. Just like Tuesday, on-shore flow has allowed the marine layer to move into the Willamette Valley. Those clouds will clear quickly today and we’ll be right back to mostly sunny skies this afternoon with highs in the mid 70s inland and low 60s at the Coast.
We’re right in between high pressure to the west and low pressure to the east. This is why we’re staying storm free, but not seeing completely clear skies or overly warm temperatures.
The high pressure off shore will nudge its way further into western Oregon Thursday which keep our skies mostly clear and help our highs to climb to the upper 70s in the Valley, mid 80s in the Umpqua Basin and upper 60s at the Coast.
Stornger on-shore flow will return Friday and we’ll eventually see a low pressure system move over the area late this weekend. We’ll start to see more clouds and possibly even drizzle Friday. Highs will only drop to the low 70s.
Saturday and Sunday will stay mostly cloudy and by Monday scattered showers are likely to return. Highs will still stay in the 70s through the weekend but will likely fall to the mid 60s early next week.
Have a great Wednesday!
