Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
***TWO BULLS FIRE UPDATE: Now 80% containment as of 10pm Thursday night, with 6,906 acres burning 10 miles NW of Bend. For the latest information: Two Bulls Fire
Not much in the way of rain for most of the south valley and coast, however, the clouds did provide a nice break from the warm and dirty forecast we’ve seen for two weeks. Tonight, cloudy overall with some occasional showers and lows dipping down into the low 50s.
Showers will be light again Friday with mainly the north coast seeing some showers, mountains as well getting the best coverage, along with some slushy snow flakes down to around 5500 feet. I’m not expecting any accumulating snow and Passes should just be wet at times. With breaks in the clouds though, there’s a chance for some isolated thunderstorms in the mountains, mainly in the afternoon.
The rest of the forecast starts to dry out as quickly as Saturday afternoon. The central and north coast might see a few isolated showers on Father’s Day, otherwise, a cloudy start but should see sun for dear old Dad by the afternoon and highs back up in the low 70s. Summertime is back quickly next week as highs will push into the low 80s by Thursday.
Have a great Thursday night!
