Summer-like temps. return
An east wind has kept skies clear and conditions mild for our start on this Sunday. Some parts of the state were dealing with a little fog and freezing temps., but everyone will warm up considerably today.
High pressure is in control across the region for sunny, warm and dry conditions. Expect that east wind to continue, and pick up this afternoon through the Gorge.
Daytime highs will climb to the 70s to around 80 for the Valley. The Coast and Central and Eastern Oregon will be into the 70s today, too.
We'll see one more day of these conditions Monday, then onshore flow returns and cools us down again.
A couple of weak systems knock on the door of the ridge this week. One Wednesday, the other Saturday, but chances of widespread rain are low at this point in the forecast.
Today - 78
Tonight - 53
Monday - 80
