Average temperatures remain in our forecast through the rest of the weekend across Western Oregon. Most of our area will see clouds to start off Sunday before the sunshine returns mid-morning. These seasonal temperatures are due to Western Oregon being sandwiched in between a low pressure system over Canada and a high pressure system over the Pacific. These two air masses are helping to keep temperatures at bay.
Conditions along the Willamette Valley will remain in the low 80s before warming back into the upper 80s next week. The Umpqua Valley will see temperatures in the mid 80s Sunday before climbing into the low 90s during our new workweek. Coastal areas will remain above average with highs in the 70s with foggy conditions to start your Sunday.
Most of eastern Lane and Douglas County remain under a High Fire Potential through the end of our weekend. This means that wildfires can start and spread quickly. Rain chances remain next to none over the next several days. This will only help to increase the fire weather threat.
