A dry Southwest weather flow produced between an area of low pressure off the coast and inland ridge of high pressure remains in place through today and this weekend. We can expect varying degrees of cloud cover in the forecast but it is essentially a dry one with afternoon temperatures at or slightly above normal for this time of year.

Partly to mostly cloudy skies in our Friday forecast with highs today in the mid to upper 80’s.

A weak cold front will move through late Saturday bringing west winds 5-15 mph with gusts around 20 mph with afternoon high temperatures in the upper 80’s.

Sunday’s weather will be a bit windy as well with west winds 10-20 mph gusting to 25 mph but, under mostly sunny skies, afternoon high temperatures will still be warm into the mid 80’s.

For Monday, the week starts in an active west-southwest weather flow, with periodic and transient middle to high-level clouds, with some afternoon cumulus development around the mountains. Some occasionally breezy gap winds will continue to plague the Cascades in Wednesday and Thursday, with potentially broader breezy conditions Thursday depending on the jet stream location. Temperatures are projected to be near seasonal norms this period, though precise numbers may change depending where the jet stream winds up toward next Thursday.

So, weather forecast for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday is calling for mostly sunny skies with afternoon high temperatures consistently in the mid 80’s with overnight lows in the lower 60’s. Thursday looks cooler with partly cloudy skies, high temperatures will top off in the lower 80’s.
