METEOROLOGIST MELISSA FREY’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
High pressure is moving in and the clouds don’t stand a chance. Along with clear skies Friday, we’ll also see strong winds. As high pressure comes in from the west and low pressure from the east, the air will be squeezed and the winds will pick up. Most of western Oregon can expect north winds of 10-20 mph with gusts to 30 mph.
We’ll remain clear Saturday and temperatures will climb into the low to mid 80s. The high pressure helping bring in the off shore flow will die down Saturday and with on-shore flow, it’ll be back to cloudy skies Sunday morning. Temperatures will top out near 80 degrees with sun breaks in the afternoon.
A storm is tracking to arrive just off shore by early Monday. We’ll see quite a bit more cloud cover along with a few chances for light rain. The best chances will be along the coast Monday and Tuesday, but we could see a few isolated showers inland Monday morning and Tuesday night.
This is our first chance at showers since mid July. Temperatures will also be cooler next week with highs in the mid to upper 70s.
Have a great weekend!
