A very warm, summer-like day again today with highs west of the Cascades well above the normal for late September. It’s been a hazy and somewhat smoky day out along the coastline, especially for the central and southern Oregon coastline. That smoke will continue traveling from the South to the North. Expect a hazy day tomorrow, you’ll notice the smoky sky from start to finish. The smoke and haze will linger through the next 3-4 days. We will likely not see the dense smoke we saw around Labor Day, this will be more of the higher elevation smoke higher up in the atmosphere. Today’s air quality was in the good category for most everyone, but that will likely change tomorrow. We’ll keep a close eye on that.
Temperatures will stay warm through the end of the work week. By the weekend, we are closer to the normal temperatures for this time of the year. We’ll fall back into the 70s for the weekend and into the first part of next week. It does look like we will see a marine push of clouds for the weekend, should turn to sunshine by the afternoon. The long-term forecast stays dry, we don’t see any rain chances at least for the next 7-9 days.
