Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
A good summer soaker for many is currently underway as an area of low pressure is spinning offshore sending plenty of showers across Western Oregon for most of the night tonight. It’s mild, muggy, and wet going into Thursday morning. Lows tonight will likely hold into the mid to upper 50s tonight.
Thursday will see mainly morning showers with sun breaks in the afternoon and any leftover rain being mostly confined to the mountains by the afternoon. Highs will still be cool with a wet ground, only topping out in the upper 60s and low 70s. Friday another front arrives with more showers on and off through most of the day.
The weekend starts showery but will finish with sunshine as we’ll split the forecast for the two days. Saturday some isolated morning showers as the leftovers from Friday’s front still linger and likely staying cloudy until late afternoon. However, the morning clouds will break up for a nice sunny finish to Sunday and highs will push back up into the mid 70s.
Summer heat (so to speak) is back for much of the first of July, high pressure aloft and a drying offshore wind are expected Monday through Wednesday. Highs will be pushing back into the mid 80s by Tuesday and possibly low 90s for the Umpqua!
Have a great Wednesday night!
