High pressure has returned to western Oregon and the sunny, dry and warmer than average temperatures are on the way! Monday started with fog forming in the Willamette Valley along with a marine layer along the Coast. These clouds will break up mid-morning revealing the blue sky that is overhead. Highs Monday will be back to the low-70s for the Valley, mid-70s in the Umpqua Basin and mid-60s along the Coast.
Tuesday will start out very similar, but by Tuesday night a small storm will move over the state. This weak cold front will bring in a few showers overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning, along with increased cloud cover. By mid-morning Wednesday it’ll be right back to mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid-60s. That “storm” is the only one we’ll see this week.
High pressure returns to the Pacific Northwest for the second half of the week and the weekend. High temperatures will slowly climb back to the upper 60s and low 70s by Saturday and Sunday under mostly sunny skies.
Have a great Monday!
