May the 4th be with you!
A few showers may linger across the region through the night, but overall the area is drying out. Thursday could face some rain as well, though the odds to see showers are better for those to the east than those to the west. Overall the region will dry out and warm up as we get into the weekend.
The Willamette Valley's Thursday will see more clouds but not nearly as much rain. There still is a chance for a few showers to roll overhead, especially in the afternoon hours. But the odds are most locations will stay dry on Thursday. High temperatures will warm into the mid 60s. On Friday some sunshine will break through the clouds. It should be a partly cloudy day with highs in the lower 70s. This weekend will begin very warm with plenty of sunshine and highs in the lower 80s. Sunday will be in the 70s with more sun.
The Oregon Coast should manage to stay dry for our Thursday as well. Still it's possible a few stray storms may find themselves on the coast, so it's impossible to promise a dry Thursday. High temperatures will end up in the lower 60s. Friday will be drier and a bit sunnier with temperatures rebounding to the upper 60s. Saturday should see mostly sunny skies and lower 70s for the afternoon temperatures. Even Sunday will continue under sunshine with upper 60s.
The Umpqua Valley has the best chance of the area to see some showers (aside from the Cascades and those east of the Cascades). High temperatures on Thursday will sit in the mid 60s with more clouds across the area and a few isolated showers in the afternoon and evening. Friday could see a bit of rain as well, through chances will drop a little to end the workweek. Highs on Friday are likely to warm into the mid 70s. The heat arrives on Saturday when sunshine dominates the sky. Temperatures to begin the weekend will end up in the mid 80s. Sunday will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s.
