Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
Early summer-like weather continues across the Pacific Northwest!
High pressure is strengthening over the area and cranking up the heat. We’ll see temperatures reach the mid 60s around lunch time, which is the normal high temperature for this time of year. We’ll continue to climb another 15+ degrees from there though, headed to the low 80s in the Willamette Valley, mid 70s at the Coast and upper 80s in the Umpqua Basin.
Even warmer weather can be expected Wednesday and Thursday. The valley should reach the mid to upper 80s, the Umpqua Basin the low 90s and the coast will stay in the mid to upper 70s.
As this ridge of high pressure moves on Thursday night and Friday we’ll see a return to on-shore flow. This will cool us off and bring temperatures back to the mid 70s in the Valley.
The next chance for rain though still isn’t until Saturday. We’ll see a trough of low pressure moving through at the end of the week which will drop highs to the 60s, bring in mostly cloudy skies and chances for light rain showers through the weekend.
Have a great day!
