Quite a bit cooler today with temps only in the lower 80s around the metro area, although that was STILL 15 degrees above average!

But we’re cooling quickly this evening with temps already mainly in the 55-65 degree range in the metro area.  Cooler marine air is coming up the Columbia River and also moving in through gaps in the Coast Range.  Speaking of that, check out the temperature change from highs yesterday to the 5pm temperatures today!

This continues tomorrow so high temps should drop about 10 degrees = unusually warm weather is over.

That said, after cool showers this weekend it appears we have another warmer period starting on Tuesday.  You can see that in the ECMWF meteogram from this morning’s run:
