Generally Pleasant

Posted by Rufus La Lone on

Friday June 28
Given the indeterminate chaos nationally & throughout the world, ironically, your host finds finds comfort in the uncertainty and variance of weather; not forgetting the comfort of a morning beverage.  Ahhh.  Got yours ready?
Pleasant weather ahead for the next week, before the potential for a couple HOT days after the 4th.  Today & the weekend will mirror the same period last week -> warm temps, plenty of sunshine; cooling on Sunday, as a weak trough passes ushering in morning clouds, primarily over the Puget Sound region. 
Warmer conditions will return next week, after the onshore flow that holds down our temps begins to weaken by Wed the 5th.  For now, we expect the 4th of July holiday period to be dry with temps likely in the 80s to lower 90s (southern OR; portion east side).  Many will take next Fri off - to make for a 4 day holiday weekend.  Well, the weather will remain dry, but temperatures are charting - on some of the models - to potentially be the hottest of the year, to date.  Temperatures could reach the upper 90s or triple-digits in the Willamette Valley, SW WA and the Tri-Cities.  If verified, the HEAT UP will extend north into southern BC.
Relief could arrive on Sunday or Monday July 7,8, if the Low pressure trough indicated on the charts moves south down the BC coast into the PNW.  In fact, showers are possible by Mon night into Tue July 9, esp north of Portland.  That would be a pleasant break from the summer heat.  Again, this forecast is not a certainty, but within the realm of ‘be prepared, just in case’.  
After that cool down, the pattern for Wed - Fri, July 10-12, returns to a dry, mild one, with morning marine clouds and plenty of sunshine inland from the coast.   
The weekend of July 13,14 looks dry & pleasant, as a notable onshore flow will provide the air conditioning.
