Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
The area of low pressure that brought in the scattered showers Monday is now long gone and the clouds cleared overnight.
Despite seeing clear skies before sunrise, we’re still seeing on-shore flow which allowed some cloud cover to move in early this morning. Those clouds will clear quickly today and we’ll be right back to mostly sunny skies and highs in the low to mid 70s inland and low 60s at the Coast. There is a slight chance that we could see a few showers popping up over the Cascade Crest this afternoon, but the rest of western Oregon will stay dry.
With high pressure nudging its way into the Pacific Northwest we’ll still see dry, mostly sunny skies Wednesday and even warmer weather Thursday with highs climbing to the upper 70s in the Valley.
Stornger on-shore flow will return Friday. This will bring in some more clouds and drop our high temperatures a few degrees. We’ll see more cloud cover Saturday and Sunday and as an area of low pressure moves thourgh we could even see a few showers. Best chances for rain in western Oreogn will be on Memorial Day. Highs will still stay in the upper 60s and low 70s.
Have a great day!
