A cooldown makes an arrival this weekend with a new air mass moving into the Pacific Northwest. This should cool temperatures for Saturday and Sunday, it will also send a few clouds our way. But the odds of getting any rain are very small.
The Willamette Valley can expect high temperatures to only warm into the mid 80s this Saturday. Skies should be mostly sunny and pleasant. On Sunday, partly cloudy skies will make an appearance with mid to lower 80s on the way. Each afternoon the winds will pick-up like they did every day. Heading into next week temperatures will hold primarily in the mid 80s. The region, through the next few days, will remain very dry.
The Oregon Coast should see some dry weather for the weekend as well. Temperatures will not cool as much as inland locations. On Saturday, expect mid 60s with some clouds around the area. Sunday should be a repeat of Saturday. Meaning, sunshine with mid 60s and some gusty winds. Heading into next week skies will remain full of sun and the region stays dry.
The Umpqua Valley will see mid to upper 80s this weekend. Skies will see plenty of blue skies with only a few high cirrus clouds. Winds, like they did every day last week, will pick up for the afternoon hours. No rain is expected this weekend or even as we get into next week. The high pressure center off the California coast should keep clouds scares and the region dry.
