Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Sunday Night Forecast Discussion:
**Wildfire information: Oregon Wildfires ***
A few sprinkles may hit the ground as a dying cold front is breaking up over Western Oregon tonight. However, we’re holding on to the southwest airflow, so it’ll stay faily mild and muggy overnight with lows only falling into the upper 50s and low 60s.
Friday and the weekend, we’ve got a good looking forcast for folks headed to Brownsville for the Bi-Mart Willamette Country Music Festival. Besides a chance for some Friday afternoon thunderstorms in the mountains, we’ll see morning clouds and afternoon sun with highs in the low 80s both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday is the wildcard day with a stronger push of marine clouds which may hang on through some of the afternoon, thus holding highs back in the upper 70s. Overall, not bad for whatever you have planned outside!
Next week, winds will stay westerly but there’s no storms coming so it’s back to dry and sunny! Highs will climb back into the upper 80s by Monday and hold there through Thursday. Looking out into next weekend, there’s a slight chance for another low to develop offshore which may bring some thunderstorms and/or light showers, but we’ll see if it continues to show up in the next few weather model runs.
Have a great Friday!
