Memorial Day Weekend Forecast: Cloudy start, sunny finish!
Thunderstorms east of the Cascades Friday evening fizzle out before midnight leaving scattered showers possible early Saturday, but clearing and warmer for the rest of the weekend.
The coast could see showers Saturday, but may see more clearing than other areas earlier in the afternoon. It still won't be all that warm, with highs only near 60. The rest of the holiday weekend will be direr and warmer, into the mid 60's.
Drizzle will fall in many areas Saturday morning- as the cloud layer over the Northern Willamette Valley and S.W. Washington valleys deepens. The area will remain cloudy all day. Daytime highs will stop in the mid to upper 60s.
Sunday and Monday- we'll finish the weekend with a stronger ridge of high pressure and afternoon sunshine. Expect partly cloudy skies with daytime highs in the mid to upper 70s.
This trend for dry weather will continue into much of next- making May 2018 the second driest May on record!
