Tuesday’s Weather Discussion from Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton
Some light sprinkles so far into Tuesday night, otherwise, it’s been cool and cloudy with mountain thunderstorms firing up. Most of the showers that sparked by late afternoon will slowly fade as we head overnight tonight and we’ll be left with a mix of clouds and clear skies with most of the rain at the coast. Although a few showers might move in early Wednesday, most of the action will be in the afternoon and evening.
Tomorrow the center of the storm will work inland into Northern Oregon bringing rain showers, not much in the way of sun breaks, more mountain thunderstorms and a cool afternoon with highs only in the mid 60s. Overall, the weather will stay unsettled Thursday and Friday, but the rain should start to taper off on Thursday and Friday. That said, there is a chance the storm may reform in Washington and keep the rain chances coming through Friday but most of it should hold in the Northern end of the state. With more sunshine seen by Friday afternoon, highs will be back into the low 70s.
The weekend looks nice and warm to officially welcome in summer in the Northwest. High pressure brings back sunny skies Saturday and Sunday and highs will push back into the upper 70s and low 80s. Next week, another good-looking storm is brewing for a wet and cool start to the work week!
Have a great Wednesday!
