Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
Tuesday morning looked a little different than any other day this month. An area of low pressure made its way up from southern Oregon overnight, this storm is in the middle atmosphere and brought in moisture from the Pacific. The combination of heat, moisture and extra dynamics from the low pressure fueled thunderstorms across most of the state.
These storms will continue through this late afternoon. Red Flag Warnings are in effect for most of central and eastern Oregon. Click here for the details on the warnings. Highs will climb to the mid to upper 80s.
Wednesday morning we’ll see a return of on-shore flow which will bring in some marine stratus and cooler air to start the day. This will be the coolest day of the week with highs in the mid 80s.
High pressure is back Thursday it’ll be back to mostly clear skies and highs will be back to the upper 80s and low 90s. This weather will hold into mid next week.
Have a great day!
