Temperatures will start to cool on Thursday back into the mid-80s inland as a weak system drops south out of British Columbia. The majority of energy will stay well east of the Cascades, meaning that we will remain dry. Despite staying dry, temperatures will drop 2 to 5 degrees.
Temperatures will continue to cool into the low to mid 80s for the weekend as an upper level trough digs into the Pacific Northwest. Yesterday, I spoke about it still being up in the air on whether we would see precipitation or not. The bulk of any precipitation stays over Eastern Oregon.
A ridge will begin building out of the Desert Southwest on Sunday returning winds out of more southwesterly direction. This bring back warmer temperatures at least through Monday. Models start diverging beyond that, with most models having difficulty resolving an incoming low-pressure system. If trends continue, mid-next week could see cooler weather moving in.
