KATU Weather Forecast

Thursday, January 29th 6:00 PM

Dry mild and for some a bit breezy.

Yep, we continue to be locked into an unseasonably dry and mild pattern. Looks like we are going to close January (June-uary) almost 1.25" below normal for precipiatation.  High pressure is building east of The Cascades so wind coming out of The Gorge will be picking up later tonight. Peak gusts could to 40 to 45mph.

With the wind and a dry stable airmass not much problem tonight or Friday morning with fog. Sunny skies during the day will allow temperatures to climb into the middle and upper 50s. If you're on the Oregon Coast you might top 60.

Computer models are suggesting a more typical pattern returning late in the weekend. cloudy and wet a series of weak weather systems will begin to arrive Sunday.

Tonight's low 39

Friday's high 54
