A New Month...And A New Stretch Of Dry Weather...

Not necessarily clear, and certainly not warm, at least not overnight.

Overnight lows will be even colder than last night, falling into the 40s. Outlying suburbs could see lows in the upper 30s.

There's a freeze warning for Central Oregon Thursday morning, until 9am.

The pattern of morning clouds or fog and afternoon sun continues Thursday west of the Cacades. But not as much fog and the clouds should wear out sooner, so daytime highs will be in the low 70s.

If you're heading to the Duck game in Eugene, it starts well after sunset, so Kick-Off temperatures will be in the low 60's.

As high pressure builds later Thursday, east winds pick up near the gorge, gusting to 35mph into Friday morning.

And daytime highs get even warmer heading into the weekend. Friday and Saturday, peak temperatures will be near 80 degrees in the valley!
