Wednesday’s Weather Discussion from Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton
A few sprinkles have fallen so far tonight, but the bulk of showers (what little it will be) will move through on Thursday morning. The coast may see some leading edge showers in the pre-dawn hours, but most everywhere else will just be mostly cloudy with lows near 50.
The low swings through the state on Thursday bringing some light showers, mainly in the morning, but some occasional isolated showers may reach into the afternoon. Most of the rain will have pushed into the mountains at that time and we’ll see a few sun breaks by late in the afternoon. Highs still cool, similar to Wednesday, in the mid to upper 60s. Friday, high pressure noses back in returning Western Oregon to a mostly sunny afternoon after the low clouds hang in the morning. Temperatures will be a bit warmer, back into the low 70s.
By the weekend, highs return to the mid and upper 70s, but that’s it. There’s a slight chance for some mountain thunderstorms Saturday and Sunday with a storm spinning offshore. Most of the thunderstorms will be confined to the Cascades, but Sunday night we might see some slipping into the valleys. We’ll see! Early next week, things are looking wetter than what we’ve seen all month. Maybe we can finally get the layers of pollen washed off.
Have a great Thursday!
