Wednesday, Oct. 23rd, 3:00 P.M.
The fog lingered in the city just a little bit longer today, but otherwise once it lifted, plenty of sun for all this afternoon. Temperatures landed in the upper 50s today. Tomorrow should be quite a bit warmer with highs into the upper 60s by afternoon. The east wind will kick in during the day, but likely won’t reach the west side of the metro. Fog tomorrow shouldn’t be an issue where the wind is blowing, like the gorge, but some spots of fog can’t ruled out in the Willamette Valley for Thursday AM. That should quickly mix out and then lots of sunshine is on tap for tomorrow. Temperatures are back to right around 60 degrees for the weekend & we stay dry.
A very weak system tries to bring in a shower on Friday, but it does not look promising. Clouds will develop early Saturday and then next week still looks very dry and cool. A big ridge of high pressure remains in place through most of next week.
