Friday’s Weather Discussion from Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton
Sunny skies returned Friday with highs back into the low to mid 70s and we’re back on our way to an even warmer Saturday forcast with sunny skies and highs moving back into the mid to upper 70s. Spots in the Umpqua will move back into the mid 80s for a toasty start to the weekend. The coast will start to see clouds move back in by the late afternoon and in the evening.
As the next storm approaches, thunderstorm chances start to pop up in the Cascades, mainly on Sunday and Monday. Speaking of Father’s Day, we’ll see clouds increasing through the latter half of the day, but overall its a dry forecast for most of your plans with Dad out and about. Highs will be generally mild, in the mid to upper 70s.
Next week, the storm (that’s been sitting offshore for most of the weekend) will slowly shift inland and bring some solid rain chances for all of Western Oregon and most of the Northwest from Monday through Thursday. Highs will drop into the mid to low 70s on Monday and the University of Oregon commencment may see some light drizzle or a passing shower. Tuesday and Wednesday look wet for sure with highs cooler, back into the upper 60s and low 70s.
Have a great weekend!
