A cloudy, muggy start...
The record heat is history! Today we're starting off cloudy, warm and muggy.
A line of showers is still rolling up the Cascades and foothills this morning. Most of the showers are light, if they're materializing at all. Hillsboro, Beaverton, Vancouver and Camas have all reported some sprinkles this morning.
An area of low pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere moves eastward through the state this afternoon, and could initiate some more thunderstorms in Central Oregon. That also means our clouds will give way to more sunshine this afternoon. Daytime highs will still only be in the low to mid 80s in the Valley today.
Our next "weather maker" will be a trough of low pressure coming down from British Columbia, that will bring more onshore flow, giving us cooler daytime highs for the next several days.
Today - 84
Tonight - 60
Tuesday - 81
