Wednesday’s Weather Discussion from Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton
Another day with highs well into the mid 80s and humid starts in the low 50s. Expect another night of overnight lows staying in the 50s under clear skies with the exception of the coast seeing some light marine layer clouds in the morning.
More sunshine, 80s and plenty of grass pollen is on tap for Friday and the weekend. While there’s a big area of low pressure sending smaller storms our way, none of them are strong enough to make it through the high pressure ridge controlling our weather. What they will do is shave off a few degrees by Saturday and Sunday, keeping highs near 80 in the valley, and mid 80s in the Umpqua. Morning clouds will likely be back at the coast tomorrow through the weekend.
Tomorrow’s NCAA Track and Field finals will be sunny 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. Highs will also drop back into the low 70s, right about where we should be right now.
Have a great Friday!
