Not many day-to-day changes are on the way for western Oregon. The Jetstream will push up to the north and take our clouds and any opportunity for rain with it. What’s left behind is a very mild and stagnant airmass for the region.
Air Quality continues to be poor for many areas as we move forward. Some of the smog overhead is due to smoke from wildfires in Northern California moving onto the state. The rest is from pollution and an airmass with little movement, allowing the particles to settle at the valley floor and degrade the quality of our air. A wind shift Sunday night into Monday morning should help to clear out some of our particulate matter in the air.
Temperatures will remain around 60 degrees for daytime highs on the coast. Inland areas will see mid to upper 50s for the next few days. Skies will be blue in the afternoon once morning clouds and fog lift away.
