METEOROLOGIST MARISA WOLOSZYN’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Partly cloudy skies are in store for Sunday night; breaks between the clouds will allow for some radiational cooling and the development of fog. Monday will start with a few areas of fog that will quickly move out. Skies will be sunny by the afternoon with highs in the upper 60s, near 70 degrees. Monday will be a bit breezy as well with wind gusts around 20 mph.
High pressure takes full control of our weather this week keeping it clear and dry. Accompanying the high pressure will be a thermal trough. A thermal trough is an area that develops along the West Coast and pulls in warm air from the southwest. The warm air works it’s way up the West Coast and depending on the strength of the trough, will bring warm air into western Oregon. Temperatures are expected in the mid 60s along the coast, mid 70s in the Willamette Valley and near 80 degrees in the Umpqua Basin.
Onshore flow will return Thursday and Friday bringing in a bit cooler air and a few more clouds.
Have a wonderful week!
