Thursday, July 11th, 3:10 A.M.
Conditions are drying out, but it’s a cloudy morning west of the Cascades. Patchy fog will be possible, as well as an isolated shower, but the majority of us will stay clear of wet weather. We’ll see partly cloudy skies during the afternoon with high temps around 80 degrees in the north Willamette Valley. Expect it to feel pretty humid out there. Conditions will be similar Friday through the weekend with morning clouds, followed by some decent afternoon sunshine with high temps in the upper 70s and low 80s. There’s a chance we could dip back into the mid 70s between early to midweek of next week, but a return to the 80s is also possible by Wednesday. Beyond Wednesday, some of our forecast models bring in another round of scattered showers. The timing looks like Thursday, but that’s subject to change.
Long-term trends continue to show fairly mild weather across the Pacific Northwest. It still doesn’t appear that a big ridge of high pressure will bring extreme heat anytime soon, and our thunderstorm threat also looks low for the next 7-10 days. Hopefully that means little to no wildfire activity around the region. Luckily, our conditions are pretty damp from the recent showers.
Have a great Thursday!
