Monday June 19
For today and early Tue, cold air aloft will spark a few more showers & thunderstorms, esp south of Salem/Eugene today and in the mountains. Cloudiness and a possible shower will drift over NW WA & southern BC from a Low moving southwest over the Pacific Ranges of Canada. By the Summer Solstice - Wed Jun 21 - sunshine will predominate the afternoons, with warmer, summer temperatures heading into the weekend. An ‘easy’ onshore breeze will increase on Sunday, tapping down temps a bit, esp along the coast. (Yes, an EF-0 tornado and funnel clouds were spotted around the region on Father’s Day.)
All of next week, Jun 26-30, looks DRY & warm, with increasing chance for thunderstorms/showers across the eastern basins & slopes of the Cascades esp after Thu.
The first weekend of July 2023 - is trending cooler than the week before, with a strong onshore push of marine air, and increasing cloudiness as the 4th of July holiday gets underway. Showers possible, too, esp over the Puget Sound on the 4th. The balance of the short work week will continue on the cool side for early July given a chilly onshore breeze.
Adjustments are likely, so stop by again on Fri for another at what type of weather early July may bring. Daylight hours will begin to shorten after this Wed.
