Some hot weather is on the way for the weekend across Oregon. Saturday looks hotter than Sunday, but both days will end up well above average for this time of year. A few clouds are possible in the mornings, but overall only sunshine is on the way.
The Willamette Valley should see sunshine and a few morning clouds on Saturday. These clouds will burn of quickly and leave behind blue skies. High temperatures are likely to warm to the lower 90s by the afternoon. Sunday remains warm as well, though a touch cooler. Sunday’s highs will range in the upper 80s. Starting next workweek mid to lower 80s are on-tap with blue skies staying overhead.
The Oregon Coast may start off Saturday a bit on the gray side for a few spots. The areas that see some morning clouds and fog will not have to deal with them for long. Sunshine quickly prevails and high temperatures warm up. Saturday’s highs will end up in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Sunday will likely see everyone remain in the 60s, but a few spots will get very close to 70s. Next week sees more of the same weather on the way—sunshine and middle 60 degree heat.
The Umpqua Valley will feel some toasty temperatures this weekend. Saturday’s highs will remain around the mid 90s for most spots. Clouds in the morning will burn away and most of the day should stay dominated by sunshine. Sunday’s forecast looks very similar, though a little cooler. Lower 90s are expected before highs dip back into the 80s on Monday. Next workweek has very little change on the way. Expect blue skies and dry weather with highs firmly in the 80s.
