Wednesday’s Weather Discussion from Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton
Toasty day today with widespread mid- 80s in the valley and Roseburg saw the first 90-degree day of the year. Tonight, we’ll stay mild again with lows only falling into the mid to low 50s. Cool nugget for tonight is the clear skies should give a great window to see the International Space Station fly over around 10:27pm for about 6 min. Just look about 2/3 up in the sky and track from SW to ENE.
I am expecting to see the marine layer push back inland at least for Thursday morning and possibly Friday morning. Highs will be just a bit cooler likely sitting around 80 in the valley and mid 80s in the Umpqua. Coastal locations will stay mostly cloudy to partly sunny with the stronger intrusion of the marine layer. But by the weekend, the high flattens out just a bit keeping an onshore push with the jet stream. Meaning, we’ll hold onto plenty of sunshine, but highs will be warm and not overly hot, staying in the low to mid 80s.
Fans in town for the NCAA Track & Field Championships should see MUCH better weather at Hayward than last year’s olympic trials. Tomorrow’s events will be sunny by mid-morning on with a breezy afternoon, which will keep the grass pollen well stuck in the “Very High” category. There’s a slight chance for some relief in sight but it’s way out in the extended forecast, next Tuesday and Wednesday we’ll finally see a cooler airmass move in and a slight chance for some isolated showers by Wednesday.
Have a great Thursday!
