Weekend Outlook

September 6, 2013


Things are looking good for the weekend!  The upper level low heads into Canada by Sunday, keeping all the showers in Washington and Idaho.

Down here in Oregon, lots of moisture left over for morning clouds or fog, then plenty of sun.  Quite a warmup for Saturday with high temps back up around 80.  They will stay in that range through Monday.

Offshore flow still looking good for Tuesday and Wednesday.  At this point the offshore looks weak for September, with just a weak thermal trough (low pressure) over the Willamette Valley.  Probably not a situation for getting 80s or 90s at the beaches.  That also means we’ll probably top out around 90 both days.  Varying solutions beyond that…either cool troughing towards next weekend or weak ridging…flip the coin.

Enjoy the warmer sunshine, you can enjoy it guilt-free now since we’ve all see a good soaking west of the Cascades.
