Update...a ridge of high pressure will remain over the area into
early next week. This will keep fair weather with mostly clear
skies...warm days and cool nights through Monday. For tonight expect
winds to relax and allow for good radiational cooling. Low
temperatures will be in the 30s with 20s in the mountains. There is
a slight chance of near freezing temperatures in portions of the
lower Columbia Basin of Oregon...but if this occurs it should only
be very briefly around sunrise. On Sunday another beautiful day is
in store with plenty of sunshine and warm temperatures. Afternoon
highs will be into the 70s lower elevations with 60s in the
mountains. Current forecast is on track and no changes are needed to
the gridded and text forecast this evening.
