Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
Yesterday’s storm is moving out and high pressure is moving in. Despite the rain showers, it was another warm night last night! Thursday morning we tied the record for the high low temperature and Friday morning we broke the record! This number is rarely reported, but there is a log kept of the warmest low temperatures. The records for August 29th and 30th are both 62°, we only dropped to 62° Thursday and 64° Friday.
The clouds will begin to break up around lunch time. Highs will be back in the low 80s today.
High pressure will be in full force Saturday. We may see some brief morning fog, but the rest of the day will be clear and highs should climb to the mid to upper 80s in the valley, upper 80s and low 90s in the Umpqua Basin, and upper 60s and low 70s at the Coast.
Sunday we’ll see a few brief morning clouds, then mostly sunny for the afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 80s.
By Monday low pressure will begin to push inland. This will bring back the clouds and chances for rain Monday through Wednesday.
Have a great weekend!
