Tuesday, April 7th, 3:30 P.M.
It’s been another great day with mainly sunny skies in the metro area. Earlier clouds have cleared along the coast so everyone was able to see sunshine today.
The next two days will be the warmest we’ve seen so far this season. A warming atmosphere overhead plus all-day sunshine will push temperatures to between 70-77 degrees west of the Cascades. A dry & warm easterly wind coming through the Gorge and over the Cascades will be helping to push those temperatures up as well. We won’t see any record highs, those are generally in the 80s in April.
Cooler “onshore flow” kicks in Friday and Saturday for a return to normal temps and more cloud cover. We might even see a sprinkle or spots of drizzle Saturday. Easter Sunday we go back to that dry easterly flow for lots of sunshine; should be good for an Easter egg hunt all day.
There is no sign of a soaking rain in the next 7+ days; enjoy the dry April weather!
