Storm Tracker Forecast: Sunny & warmer for the rest of this week

A substantial warming trend is ahead for the rest of this week, but welcome changes are returning in your extended forecast

Posted: Sep 11, 2019 6:31 AM

The cooler weather was nice while it lasted, but now it's time to prepare for a substantial warming trend to return for the remainder of your work week. Skies have been clearing out overnight, and sunny skies are expected today. Temperatures will end up 5 to 8 degrees warmer than yesterday this afternoon, and will continue to climb through Saturday. Fire danger becomes a bigger concern over the next few days as humidity drops, North winds develop, and temperatures climb into the mid to high 90's. Skies are mostly clear for the start of your Wednesday and temperatures are starting out brisk this morning. Valley areas have dipped into the 50's to 60's overnight, and mountain areas are starting out in the 30's to 40's this morning. Winds are projected to be out of the North or Northwest to around 10mph this afternoon, and humidity is expected to dip into the 15 to 30 percent range today. The shift in the winds could also spell trouble for air quality across our region this afternoon as smoke from several fires burning in our region could be pushed down into the valley. High temperatures will end up in the high 80's to low 90's in the valley today and mountain areas will end up in the low 70's to low 80's this afternoon.

Sunny to mostly sunny skies and a warming trend will continue through Saturday. Valley areas can expecte temperatures to climb back into the mid 90's on Thursday and then into the mid to high 90's on Friday and Saturday. We could see a few clouds brushing through our region during that time, but we're expecting to stay dry. Air quality will continue to be a concern with the North winds continuing over the next several days, so you may want to limit your outdoor activities. The next big change in your forecast is arriving on Sunday. A cooler and wet weather pattern will enter our region as low pressure moves into the Pacific Northwest. High temperatures will dip back into the mid to high 80's on Sunday and will continue to slide back down into the 70's for the start of next week. The potential for showers will return to mountain areas on Sunday night and will then spread across our entire area on Monday. Valley showers will be possible and the potential for showers and thunderstorms will be likely in the mountains. Most of the wet weather is currently projected to fizzle out on Tuesday, but mountain showers could linger into the middle of next week.
