Justin’s Wednesday Night Forecast Discussion:
Toasty today with Eugene and Roseburg in the upper 80s and Corvallis at 90 degrees! With the jet stream pointed up into British Columbia, I’m expecting more of the same for the rest of the work week (and school week.)
Overnight tonight, expect clear skies and another nice, mild start for the inland valleys in the low to mid 50s. The coast will welcome the marine clouds back late tonight and likely for most of the day tomorrow.
High pressure aloft is keeping the jet stream well north of Oregon which allows for the warmer air to our south to invade the state (so to speak.) So expect highs tomorrow and Friday to be in the upper 80s and possibly a few areas touching 90 by Friday! The coast will be cooler as the marine clouds will hug the beaches for the next few days, producing highs in the low 60s and upper 50s.
Morning clouds will be back by the weekend as the ridge breaks down slowly and the jetstream returns to a more westerly push. The good news is while the morning clouds will be back, Saturday’s Duck and Beaver home games will be pleasant in the low 80s and plenty of sunshine.
Early next week, a weak cold front may bring some light drizzle or even a passing shower to the coast on Sunday. While I don’t expect any showers to make it inland, a nice push of cooler air will break the summer-like heat and drop highs back into the mid to low 70s by Monday.
