CHIEF METEOROLOGIST JUSTIN STAPLETON’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
More isolated thunderstorms in the Cascades today, but they should wrap up quickly this evening. Inland valleys will see mostly clear skies overnight while the marine layer will move back in along the coast. Lows will stay mild in the mid to upper 40s.
Tomorrow may still see some isolated thunderstorms but again, they’ll likely stay in the Southern Cascades with a few developing around Bend and Redmond. Friday is shaping up to be widespread 80s for all inland areas and sunny again at the coast.
Saturday also will be warm but more clouds will be moving in late day. Mother’s Day will see the first real rain chances in about three weeks with a cold front bringing showers by the afternoon and evening. Cooler, and more typically cloudy weather will return for the beginning of next week, but there’s not a lot of storm activity that I can see in our extended forecast.
Have a great Friday!
Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton
