A COOL NORTHWEST FLOW OF AIR WILL KEEP TEMPERATURES WELL BELOW NORMAL FOR LATE JULY/EARLY AUGUST
A FEW WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSHOWERS ARE POSSIBLE FROM TIME TO TIME, BUT RAIN CHANCES ARE GOING TO REMAIN LOW
RECORD LOWS WILL BE POSSIBLE THE NEXT SEVERAL MORNINGS
Tonight: Stray evening shower. Partly to mostly cloudy. Lows 54-59. Northwest wind 5-10 mph.
Tuesday: Partly sunny and pleasant. Highs 71-78. Northwest wind 5-15 mph.
Tuesday Night: Mostly clear with record low temperatures likely. Lows 45-53. Light wind.
Wednesday: Mostly sunny and pleasant. Highs 75-80.
We are tracking some cooler air making its way into the region in the StormTrack 5 Weather Center. A spotty shower is possible here or there through the remainder oft the day, though it does not seem highly likely. One or two may hold over into very early Tuesday morning.
StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking high pressure that will settle into the region to take care of us throughout the middle of the week. This will also bring cooler than normal temperatures for July. We will see a mix of clouds and sunshine through mid-week as a cooler and drier air mass is in place. Minor impulses in the mid-levels of the atmosphere could be enough to generate a few pop up showers here and there, but there's nothing of major concern.
We could see record lows again this week as skies are expected to be clear and winds to be calm. The record for Tuesday is 55°, Wednesday is 56° and Thursday is 55°.
Another disturbance will start to take shape on Friday and bring a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon.
Showers and thunderstorms will be possible on Saturday and Sunday with a 30 percent chance.
Our holding pattern of an upper level cool anomaly will finally begin to break as we start next week. Temperatures are expected to be below normal through next weekend.
Highs will be in the upper 70s to low 80s Monday through Sunday. Lows will be in the low 50s to near 60 through next Sunday night.
