Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Friday Night Forecast Discussion:
Another warm day to end the work week as highs jumped back into the upper 80s in the valley, low 90s in the Umpqua and mid 60s at the coast. Tonight, it’ll stay muggy for much of the evening with a chance for some light AM cloud cover just after sunrise. Lows tonight will fall back into the low 50s.
Saturday and Sunday will also be warm, possibly a touch cooler with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 and still sunny most if not all of the day. High pressure from the Rockies will push hot, dry air across the state and with the jetstream moving back up into Western Canada, we’ll only see a weak on-shore push of clouds in the morning and sunshine the rest of the day.
Early next week, the jetstream flattens out a tad, increasing the onshore push but it won’t really knock temperatures down that much so expect to see upper 80s to near 90 Monday through about Thursday. Midweek, we’ll be on the watch for some mountain thunderstorms in the afternoons.
Have a great weekend!
