Thunderstorms again are billowing up across the cascades and moving from the north to the south. These storms have a very minor westerly aspect to their direction, meaning there is a small chance a shower or thunderstorm may roll down the western slope of the mountains and into the valleys. Though the odds of this are miniscule, and it’s likely our evening will remain thunderstorm free.
Tuesday will begin with some low clouds that burn away to blue skies. The coast will see clouds take an extra hour to burn off and inland locations. But everyone will see sunshine for the afternoon. Highs will be warm as well. On the coast expected temperatures to breach 70 degrees for many spots. Inland valley will easily hit the upper 80s with a couple locations reaching 90 degrees.
The hottest day this week is Wednesday. Temperatures will easily reach into the 90s for most spots. On the coast upper 70s are possible. Showers and thunderstorms are expected to re-appear Wednesday afternoon. Some of the showers may linger into Thursday morning.
After Wednesday, the rest of the week is much cooler with temperatures back in the mid to upper 70s.
