Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
Rinse and Repeat!
The high pressure that has been with us since Monday hasn’t budged. This means another clear, warm day across the Pacific Northwest, with the exception of the valley which will be stuck in the fog. Highs will stay in the 40s in the valley, 50s in the Umpqua, Cascades and Central Oregon and 60s along the coast. Clear skies mean another round of chilly nights for everyone. It’ll be in the upper 20s and low 30s in the valley, mid 30s along the coast and down to the teens and low 20s in Central Oregon.
The warm, dry conditions will unfortunately chip away at the 1-2 feet of snow that fell last weekend at the ski resorts, although Willamette Pass still has two feet and plans to open for the holiday weekend starting Friday!
The only shot at rain in the next seven day stretch is a very weak storm that may bring in a few light showers, mainly just to the north coast, Saturday. The valley and Cascades will see just mostly cloudy skies. There are no other storms through at least Tuesday.
Have a great day! ~Meteorologist Melissa Frey
