Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Monday Night Forecast Discussion:
Once again, highs across Western Oregon pushed into the 90-degree range, ensuring a toasty start to the work week. Overnight, we’ll be under clear skies but still mild with lows approaching the mid to low 50s.
Tuesday and Wednesday, the ridge of high pressure is still the driving force for most of the Pacific Northwest, therefore, expect highs to climb back into the low 90s with the exception of the coast, where morning clouds should give way to afternoon sun and mid 60s. For the next couple of days, that’s the best location to beat the heat.
Turning towards the weekend, a low pressure center will SLOWLY start to drop in from the Gulf of Alaska bringing back morning clouds for valley residents and chop highs back into the mid to upper 80s. With the start of the Lane County Fair this week, slightly cooler days will be here for the weekend rush at the fairgrounds. Highs are likely going to sit in the mid to low 80s!
Still dry and no rain for the foreseeable future as we’re adding to what is the driest start on record for the year and the 5th overall driest summer in Eugene!
Have a great Tuesday!
