Weather 5-4-18

The ridge of high pressure that has been bringing us all this beautiful weather is flattening as the next weather trough nears the southern British Columbia Coast. There will be more clouds today across the region and temperatures will a degree or two cooler than yesterday. Ahead of the weather system, winds will increase to 10 to 20 mph with gusts of 20 to 25 mph expected. On Saturday, the trough will shift taking most of the moisture associated with it to the east. For the Grand Parade we can expect partly cloudy skies with highs in the mid-70’s.

To end the weekend on Sunday, things could get interesting. A moist mid-level area of low pressure moves into Southern Oregon bringing with it lots of clouds and with our warm temperatures, a 30% chance of thunderstorms by late afternoon/early evening.

A ridge of high pressure moves back in briefly on Monday and Tuesday with sunshine and temperatures in the low to mid-80’s. Mid-week next week expect active weather with showers and cooler temperatures.
