Sunday, August 1st, 8:15 P.M. 

As expected, today turned out to be a lot different than yesterday. We had more sunshine and way less smoke and haze overhead. Temperatures jumped up into the upper 80s and even low 90s this afternoon for some spots. It’s been another dry day for Portland. Showers and thunderstorms have once again developed this afternoon and evening. There have been a few storms over central Oregon and in the Eugene area, but nothing holding together for the metro area yet. There has been quite a bit of lightning, and that has likely started a few small fires in the foothills/Cascades in Southern Oregon.

Tomorrow and Tuesday will feature hazy sunshine. Temperatures will warm into the low 90s for the next three days. Thursday will feature a big drop in temps, with highs right around 80 degrees. We’ll see 70s for Friday – Sunday. Along with the cooler weather, shower chances return Thursday & Friday for the Willamette Valley.
