Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
Thunderstorms already starting to fire across Western Oregon today as the low moving in off the ocean continues to stir up the atmosphere for the next two days. Each afternoon we’ll have a chance to see occasional heavy showers and frequent lightning. Some storms may become intense with small hail, especially on Wednesday. Skies will vary from mostly sunny to mostly cloudy as the storms move from south to north. Highs will likely be all over the map with the coast sitting in the low 60s, inland valleys from mid 70s to upper 80s.
The strongest storms will be in the heat of the day and mainly in the mountains and Central Oregon today. Tonight as the low starts to move inland, there’s a good chance we’ll be seeing some overnight thunderstorms leading to a soggy at times Wednesday areawide. Thursday, the coast will hold onto some light morning showers, otherwise morning clouds will break up back to mostly sunny skies. Here’s a break down of what to expect over the next couple of days:
The rest of the work week and weekend forecast is very quiet with mostly sunny skies from the coast to the mountains and highs in the mid to upper 80s.
Have a great Tuesday!
