Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
This weekend brought very summer-like conditions across the state. The Coast made it to the 70s, the valley to the upper 80s and central Oregon to the 90s.
Labor Day is shaping up to be more fall-like than summer-like. A weak front is moving across the state. This brought the clouds early in the day and will bring light isolated showers across western Oregon. Most of the rain will be wrapped up by 2 p.m. but thunderstorms will fire up over the Cascades and in central Oregon late tonight and the valley could see a few showers from this as well. Highs will stay near 80°.
Tuesday and Wednesday we’ll be in between storms. We’ll stay dry and at least partly sunny and highs will stay in the low 80s.
A larger area of low pressure will move in Thursday. This will bring in a cooler air mass and chances for thunderstorms across most of the state.
We clear out Friday and it’s back to summer like weather for the weekend.
Have a great Labor Day!
