Tim Chuey Weather:

Plenty of sunshine today and even warmer.

High: 84
Low: 52
Forecast: Warm

An upper level low pressure trough is moving eastward away from us while a high pressure ridge (“Arch” shape on orange line) takes over and shreds fronts that try to push our way. A frontal system (position shown is Sunday) will approach the Oregon coast Saturday with  a few more clouds and just the slightest chance of a sprinkle Sunday afternoon and that’s about it. Summer is almost here! It officially begins with the Summer Solstice at 4:09 PM PDT next Wednesday June 20th.
