On the coast Tillamook topped out at 74 degrees, unbelievable for this time of year.High pressure will continue to its grip on the Pacific Northwest. Fair skies will be in the forecast tonight on both sides of the Cascades. The ridge is centered east of the mountains, so we'll continue to see strong east winds blowing down the gorge. Overnight lows will drop off into the low to middle 40's wind sheltered areas will fall into the upper 30's. Tuesday highs will return to the low 60's in the Willamette Valley.
The mild and dry pattern will continue until later this week when the ridge begins to breakdown. Rain could return as early as Thursday night.
