Much Warmer…Briefly

After the sun sets tonight shower activity on the east side will dry out and we’ll see gradual clearing of the skies this evening for inland areas which will allow temperatures to drop quickly. Tonight will be a chilly to cold night across the region so tomorrow will be a good day to dress in layers because tomorrow afternoon will be much warmer than what we’ve seen all week! The warmer weather will continue through the weekend as high pressure builds into the region. Tonight the marine layer will return at the coast and some clouds to persist for inland areas in the morning with abundant sunshine returning to the region for most of the day tomorrow.

Saturday an upper low will begin to push into the region bringing a slight chance for thunderstorms to the Cascades in the afternoon and a better chance for thunderstorms across the viewing area late Father’s Day and only a slight chance for thunderstorms late Monday along and east of the Cascades. The warmer weather we’ll see this weekend is short-lived as the upper-low will return the unseasonably cool temperatures we’ve see this week back to the Pacific Northwest and spotty showers early next week.

For thunderstorms on Father’s Day be prepared for conditions to change rapidly as the day will start warm with mostly sunny skies. Stay tuned to Newswatch12 for the latest.
