Cooler Week Ahead

Enjoy our last warm day of the week before an upper low settles over the Pacific Northwest bringing unseasonably cool temperatures again this week, comparable to last week. Wednesday will be the coolest day of the week and that will carry over to Thursday morning and we could be waking up to areas of frost at the higher elevations and on the east side. This afternoon we once again will have a chance for thunderstorms in the northern Cascades, the favored area for thunderstorm growth is mainly north of our region today. Tomorrow when the upper low moves inland we’ll have our best chance so far for thunderstorms to form for all inland areas, with the favored spots along and east of the Cascades in southern Oregon.

We could see a few light showers this afternoon at the coast and the higher elevations with shower activity increasing tomorrow. The bulk of the rain will fall late Tuesday into early Wednesday but we’ll see spotty showers through Wednesday. Most of the rain will fall along and west of the Cascades, but it will be mainly light showers with the potential for moderate rain at the coast.

Summer officially begins on Friday and temperatures will rebound just in time back to what we expect for early Summer. Thanks for logging on and have a great Monday!
