Monday’s Weather Discussion from Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton
We’re finishing up a wet and soggy Memorial Day with more scattered showers overnight but they’ll be tapering off fairly quickly and should be all but gone by early Tuesday morning. Lows tonight will stay a bit milder than average, with most areas sitting in the low 50s.
Tomorrow starts dry and should hold partly sunny through most of the afternoon with highs back in the mid 60s. Another strong wave of rain is coming late Tuesday/early Wednesday blasting across the area through mid-morning becoming showers through late night and early Thursday. Rainfall amounts look to be around .50″ inland, possibly more at the coast and in the mountains. Thursday, the wet weather start to break up and we’ll begin a nice stretch of weather heading into the first of June.
By the weekend, a sizable high pressure ridge rebuilds across the Eastern Pacific and starts to draw up much warmer air into the Northwest. We’ll see highs push back into the mid to upper 70s and back to dry, sunny skies Friday through early next week. With both Duck and Beaver baseball teams hosting teams, it should be a great weekend for college playoff baseball.
Have a great Tuesday!
