Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Monday Night Forecast Discussion:
**Douglas County wildfire updated information including evacuation info: DC Wildfire Complex
Nice cooler day again to start the work week with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s. The marine clouds will be back late tonight with lows falling to a very comfortable low 50s inland and mid-50s in the Umpqua. We should start the day with a cloudy start Tuesday all across Western Oregon.
Tomorrow and Wednesday will be slightly warmer with highs back up into the mid and upper 80s. However, an upper level low is approaching the coastline and will bring back cooler temperatures and an increase in cloudy skies for both Wednesday night and Thursday. Highs will fall back into the upper 70s. Also, the low may help trigger some isolated thunderstorms Wednesday and if they can hold together, we might see our first rain chances of the month in the valley early Thursday morning.
By the weekend, high pressure starts to take hold once again, and it’s back to sunny and dry with highs back up in the upper 80s and low 90s.
Have a great Tuesday!
