Sunday, July 5th, 4:30 P.M.
You probably have noticed it was a bit warmer today…late afternoon temperatures are up close to what we would expect this time of year (upper 70s). We’ve gone through a very cool stretch the past week or so. Skies remain partly cloudy tonight and then thicker marine clouds fill in west of the Cascades again for a cloudy start Monday.
A little stronger push of ocean air means cooler temps tomorrow, we’ll stay in the lower 70s. Then a weak disturbance passing overhead Tuesday will likely give us a gray/gloomy day with sprinkles or a shower. Not a “wet” day, but a bit damp at times. Temperatures rebound the 2nd half of the week back to near normal due to less ocean air flooding inland. A slight chance for a shower returns late in the week and next weekend, but no weather models give us any sort of real rain.
In general, the next 7 days will continue to feature more cloud cover than normal for early-mid July. If you want sunshine head to the eastern end of the Gorge or east of the Cascade crest. All of those viewers will see mainly sunny skies the rest of the this week.
