Weekend Weather Update
Happy Friday everyone! This weekend keeps looking better and better weatherwise for the Portland / Vancouver metro area. Any chance of rain in the metro area will be light and may hold off until late Sunday night or even Monday. The latest model forecasts for the weekend are trending warmer as well. High temps today will be in the mid-upper 70’s. Saturday will see highs of about 70. Sunday should cool into the 60’s but still remain pleasant. After a slight downturn Monday, models are beginning to hint at the strongest ridge of the season building into the Pacific Northwest next week. It is still a ways off, but we could see our first 80’s of the season locally. More on that later. Get outside and enjoy this great spring weather, especially today and Saturday. Stay tuned!
