Friday’s Weather Discussion from Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton
Great start to the forecast for this weekend as high pressure is returning the Northwest to a sunny and warmer forecast for the foreseeable future. Overnight, we’ll be under mostly clear skies and lows falling into the mid to low 40s. Nice cool start to what will be a great, sunny Saturday. We’ll see highs push back into the mid to upper 70s and back to dry, sunny skies tomorrow.
The one caveat to our full sunshine weekend is a weak disturbance that’ll fall apart before it reaches the coastline, but will push the marine layer back inland for a cloudy start areawide for Sunday. Highs will be a bit cooler, back down in the low 70s but still sunny by the afternoon.
Next week, the sunny skies hold on and a heat low or thermal trough starts to build off the Northern CA coast. That usually works in our favor for a very warm couple of days. I’m looking at highs climbing into the upper 70s and even low 80s next Tuesday and Wednesday.
Have a great weekend!
