Sunshine is here for the weekend—with a few exceptions. Each morning clouds and fog will start the day, but by the afternoon sunshine fills into the region. The sunshine will help to drive temperatures upwards.
The Willamette Valley will see partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies for our Saturday. The day begins gray but turns to sunshine for the second half of the day. Highs will reach the middle 60s on Saturday and likely the low 70s on Sunday. Next workweek repeats the weekend pattern. Clouds will start each morning, with blue skies in the afternoon. Temperatures on Monday and Tuesday should stay in the mid to lower 70s.
The Oregon Coast has more clouds around the region for the weekend, though these clouds and areas of fog are mostly restricted to the morning hours. By the afternoon they should burn away and leave behind blue skies. The clouds never leave entirely but lift enough to qualify both Saturday and Sunday as partly cloudy to mostly sunny days. Temperatures this weekend up and down the coast will stay in the middle 60s. By Monday temperatures may reach the 70 degree mark.
The Umpqua Valley has more sunshine in the forecast. Though the morning hours will stay filled with clouds. In the late morning and early afternoon, any cloud cover which does exist will fade away. Highs for Saturday will reach the lower 70s. Sunday’s highs will likely warm to the upper 70s and by Monday lower 80s are expected.
