Monday July 3
HOT pattern ahead for a couple days, then cooling into seasonal norms. Enjoy the holiday, Patron.
The advertised ‘heat up’ is here, so expect temperatures to pop into the upper 90s, to near 100, in many areas on the 4th and 5th. Afternoon breezes not be as strong as the past several days. It will cool down a few degrees, as marine air begins to work inland starting overnight Wed in the southern Willamette Valley. Cooler for the Puget Sound, too, esp by Fri.
A few clouds & a slight chance for stray showers may form over the Cascades, but other than that, there is no precipitation expected around the PNW until about July 12 & 13. As noted, temps will cool down, mainly in the 70s to low 80s west side by the weekend and through early the week of July 10-14.
A Low pressure trough is charting to push inland around Thu the 13th, which will introduce mid-summer showers to the PNW, esp north of Chehalis. Another notch cooler for a few days.
We expect the next ‘heat up’ to arrive sometime during the week of July 17-21. Too early to peg max temps, but it will be mid-summer, so temps in the 90s may tease out. Stay tuned.
Enjoy the HOT & DRY Independence Day. Stay fire safe.
