• FORECAST: Cooler for a few days

    Onshore flow has strengthened today and will continue for the rest of the work week. 

    Clouds to start today, but we will see some sunshine breaks during the day with temperatures closer to seasonal norms -- in the upper 70s. 

     

    A weak weather system will brush by on Friday but that will mainly serve to bring rain to our friends in British Columbia and maybe the north Cascades.

     

    A slow warming trend then starts up over the weekend – back in the 80s both days – and we could be back in the upper 80s by early next week.


    Aside from that weak Friday system skirting by to our north, there just won’t be any substantial chance of rain through the next week and most likely through the end of July.  This dry stretch of weather this time of year is not unusual as the last two weeks of July and the first week or two of August are typically the warmest and driest weeks of the year, but the lack of rainfall through May and June will keep fire danger elevated.
