Plenty of sunshine today, but it will be just a bit cooler.
Forecast: Sunny but cooler
A high pressure ridge (Shaded “Arch” shape with blue arrows in the Gulf of Alaska) will make sure we will be covered with sunshine and continued warm temperatures for a while yet. A low pressure area off the California coast will slowly move toward the Oregon coast increasing the onshore flow which will give us some more clouds and cooler temperatures. We will start to cool down a bit, but temperatures will remain just a bit above normal. There will be a change in the weather pattern as we get into the weekend and next week.
