The high pressure ridge that brought the record breaking heat this week is slowing shifting east and the jet-stream will continue to flatten to a more zonal flow into the weekend. This will bring cooler temperatures into the weekend with slightly below average temperatures expected Sunday and Monday, that’s a drop of 2o to almost 30 degrees for some areas! The marine layer will persist at the coast but we should have some afternoon clearing for many locations on Friday.
Saturday a weak front will bring a chance for isolated light showers in the afternoon and evening, mainly to the Cascades and Siskiyous with a slight chance at the coast and west side valleys. Sunday the low associated with this front will move in bringing increasing showers to the region and a slight chance for isolated thunderstorms, mainly to the coast, Cascades and east side. Isolated showers will continue into Monday with a better chance for isolated thunderstorms across the region.
Quite weather returns Tuesday with warmer temperatures into the end of next week and the return of mostly sunny skies. Follow me on Facebook and Twitter for more weather updates. Thanks for logging on and have a great evening!
