Cloudy skies, and warmer temperatures are ahead for your Thursday forecast. Low pressure approaching the Pacific Northwest will spread clouds through the West Coast over the next 24 hours, but will not leave the north state with any significant chance of showers. Wet weather will be limited to areas of Northern Oregon, and Washington today. Skies will begin to clear across the north state this afternoon. Temperatures are starting out in the low to mid 60's in the valley this morning, and in the high 30's to low 50's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures will climb back into the low to mid 90's in the valley this afternoon under clearing skies, and mountain areas will have highs top out in the 81 to 89 degree range this afternoon. Winds will be out of the North to 10mph in the valley, and out of the East to 10mph in the mountains.
Temperatures will be a degree or two higher on Friday with mostly sunny skies. Slightly cooler conditions will be ahead for Saturday, before a much more substantial cooling trend returns on Sunday. Valley areas will top out in the mid to high 80's on Sunday, and then fall into the high 70's to low 80's by Tuesday. Cooler conditions look to linger for the better part of next week, but wet weather looks very unlikely. I hope everyone finds a way to keep cool in the hotter temperatures ahead for today, and has a great Thursday!
