CHIEF METEOROLOGIST JUSTIN STAPLETON’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Tonight, most of the cloud cover has cleared and we’re about to see another round of patchy frost in the outlying areas. Frost Advisories are up for all of the Willamette Valley down through the Umpqua through 8am. While the coast will sit near 40, inland areas will dip well into the low 30s by sunrise. I’d expect to see some light frost on the back windows (and windshield) of your car tomorrow.
Tomorrow, high pressure again begins to trek north into the Northern Pacific and eventually moving over the Northwest by the end of the week. That will mean another round of early summer-like weather for us starting Thursday through most of the weekend. Highs will climb to near 70 tomorrow, upper 70s to near 80 by Friday and should hold sunny and very warm through the weekend. Spots in the Umpqua may again climb into the mid 80s this weekend!
A cut-off low meanders into California by next week but as of now, looks to be too far south to really impact our weather. But computer models don’t handle those conditions very well, so I’ll be watching to see where it sets up once we get later in the week. Get ready for it to feel like July by Friday!
Have a great Wednesday!
