Dry weather will persist across Oregon for the next couple of days as rain remains well off to the north. Sunshine will continue as well, but despite this, temperatures will remain below average. This is cause by northly wind across the state pulling in cooler air from the north. Rain chances will eventually return, but not until Friday night and Saturday morning.
The Oregon Coast should start the day off with low clouds and some fog as the marine layer pushes right up against the coast. These clouds should burn away in the morning and allow sunshine to dominate the day. No rain is expected for the central and southern coast. Locations way up north—north of Newport—might see a light misting before the clouds clear away. This trend will repeat through the rest of the workweek with highs in the mid 60s.
Inland areas will see clouds in the morning as well, though they’ll burn quickly. Most locations should have sunshine overhead on Wednesday before 10am. High temperatures will manage to reach the mid to lower 70s on Wednesday. Southern locations should be warmer than northern ones. These temperatures are below average for this time of year, but by Thursday we should see highs very close to average before a cooldown on Friday with the arrival of our next storm.
