Memorial Day weekend will start out cool and end up warm

Starting out on Saturday the mercury in the thermometer will be in the upper 50s to low 60. A cold pocket of air will overtake the region today and Saturday and keep the Pacific Northwest in a cooler than normal pattern. There may be some scattered showers over the Cascades before sunrise Saturday then partly to mostly cloudy skies will define the day. Gusty winds will push through the passes, so travel may be slightly impacted by the robust gusts.

Sunday will begin a warmer regime as the temperature readings will be in the low 70s. High pressure develops over Central Oregon and keeps the skies mostly clear and dry.  The winds will relax and our area will be quiet and mild.

Memorial Day looks to be warm and dry. The high temperatures across the high desert will be in the upper 70s and low 80s.  This will be about 10 – 12 degrees above our normal high for late May. Expect to see plenty of sunshine and dry conditions as well.

The short work week starts out dry but there may be some cloud cover arriving as early as Wednesday.  I am not anticipating any widespread rain, but we may see a few pockets here and there. Temps dip back into the 60s Wednesday.
