It was another clear night and beautiful sunrise across Oregon. Temperatures are starting out in the low to mid 30s in the Willamette Valley, but will still likely make it to the upper 50s and low 60s this afternoon.
The high pressure that has kept us dry most of this week will slide east today. As this ridge moves on to the east, a cold front will move in from the west. We’ll gradually see increasing clouds through the afternoon, but the storm itself won’t get here until Friday morning.
Friday will start out mostly cloudy with scattered showers through the afternoon. Highs will drop to the mid to upper 50s.
High pressure returns Saturday, bringing back spring-like conditions just in time for the weekend. Highs will be in the mid to upper 60s across western Oregon.
Enjoy the sunshine,
