A Return to Sunshine and 70's!

High pressure builds back in across the Pacific Northwest, bringing a return to sunshine and warm temperatures. PERFECT weather to get out and about and enjoy all of the beautiful Fall colors.    

We see temperatures jump back up into the mid 70's by Wednesday and near 80° by Thursday, with overnight lows that will be in the upper 40's to low 50's.

We are watching a weak system for the first half of the weekend that will bring our temperatures back down into the low 70's and upper 60's with a slight chance of some showers on Saturday. Stay tuned for more on that!

Have a great day!
