Thursday’s Weather Discussion from Meteorologist Melissa Frey:
The countdown is on! The Summer Solstice is at 10:04 p.m., making the start to the summer less than 12 hours away.
We’re still seeing a few isolated showers across western Oregon as an area of low pressure moves east. Thursday will be the transition day to high pressure with partly sunny skies, decreasing showers and highs near 70°.
By Friday the jet stream will head north and with high pressure moving in, we’ll be even warmer with highs in the mid 70s. A few light lingering isolated showers are possible all the way through Friday night. Saturday should stay dry, mostly sunny and much warmer with highs near 80° .
The next series of storms begins to move in Sunday. There are at least three storms headed our way. This should drop out temps for early next week and keep the rain going.
Have a great last day of Spring!
