METEOROLOGIST MARISA WOLOSZYN’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Clouds will move back in Saturday night and stick around for the first part of Sunday. Morning lows will be around 40 degrees as the clouds will keep some of the warmth in.
Clouds will break apart by Sunday afternoon, leading to mostly sunny skies and highs into the low 60s. A weak disturbance will slide to the north Sunday night, bringing some instability over our area. We’ll see a few sprinkles overnight and some fog Monday morning.
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 it an area that develops along the U.S. 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; this trough will be strong enough to pull the 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.
Have a superb Sunday!
