Some Clouds And Fog Roll In Overnight...It'll Be A Warm Start To Sunday...
And that could lead to even warmer high temperatures than Saturday. Salem tied a record of of 64 Saturday. Astoria broke the old record of 57 with a high of 58. Troutdale hit 63 and set a new record high by a degree.
High pressure is building over the Northwest, but also creating an inversion layer, trapping some of the fog and cooler air at the lower elevations in the valleys.
Once again Sunday we could see very warm daytime highs at the coast, into the Coast Range and the Cascades, and especially East of the Cascades, but cooler highs in the Valley. Especially in the central and southern part of the Willamette Valley, possibly in the metro area, if we don't see the fog and low clouds clear out quickly. Salem for example could be stuck in the low 50's if the fog sticks around, but in the mid 60's again with the sunshine.
Pass temperatures in the Cascades could get into the low 60's Sunday.
Sunday afternoon temperatures could easily be in the mid to upper 60's in Central Oregon, and for SW Oregon.
It's not just unusually warm, 5 to 15 degrees warmer than typical this time of year, but dry too.
We'll stay dry until late Tuesday into Wednesday. Even with some potential rain, mild temperatures will continue through the week.
Tonight - 45
Tomorrow - 58
