Cooler weather arrives on Wednesday. Our region of high pressure off the Northern California coat keeping us warm and dry, pushes westward tonight. This provides space for a storm system to swing through Idaho and Montana. The storm will be close enough to drop our temperatures a few degrees, but too far away to bring us rain.
The Willamette Valley should see partly cloudy skies and dry weather around the region. Highs should warm to the upper 60s, a few spots may get into the lower 70s. Winds may gust at times, but sustained winds will remain light and pleasant. No rain is expected however, despite that a few extra clouds are possible. Thursday remains mostly sunny and temperatures return to the 70s. On Friday, as well as the weekend, skies should be sunny with highs in the lower 80s.
The Oregon Coast has some windy weather on the way for Wednesday. Winds will gust from the north as high as 35 mph at times. Skies should see clouds as well and highs will not be as warm as we’ve seen the past few days. Wednesday’s highs will be in the mid to lower 60s. On Thursday, mostly sunny skies return with mid to upper 60s. 70s are possible Friday as this weekend.
The Umpqua Valley shouldn’t be as warm for out Wednesday. Partly cloudy skies will make up the day. More clouds in the morning, less in the afternoon. Temperatures will manage to reach the middle 70s in the afternoon—which is cool comparted to the recent string of 90 degree temperatures. On Thursday, skies will return to mostly sunny. Highs should be in the upper 70s. 80s will be seen Friday and this weekend.
