Tonight: Tonight we will see partly cloudy skies with lows in the upper-40s to low 50s with winds out of the West at 5 to 10 mph with light Fog.
Tomorrow: We will start off with partly cloudy skies with morning lows in the upper 40s to low 50s. In the afternoon we will see high pressure move away from the region and a weak cold front roll into the region in the afternoon. Skies will stay clear but there is a small chance of a shower in the morning. Highs will be in the mid-70s to low 80s.
Work Week: An upper trough over the Gulf of Alaska is flattening the upper ridge that has been bringing the very warm to hot weather across SW Oregon and northern California the last couple of days. Energy will continue to dive into the trough and by late this week into this weekend, much of that energy will careen into the Pacific Northwest. As a result, we expect big changes from the summer-like pattern we're currently experiencing to one more representative of mid-late fall Friday through next Monday. We're most confident in the significant drop in temperatures expected during this time frame and a little less confident in the details with respect to timing and strength of frontal systems arriving onshore. The trend, however, will be one of appreciable cooling and also increasing rain chances. Albeit slightly slower than previous extended guidance indicated, models continue to suggest widespread wetting precipitation moving into the area over the weekend and continuing into early next week.
