An early start to May 80's...And Even Warmer Monday!It's an all time record pace for 80+ degree days as we move further into 2016. Typically in Portland we may get about three dozen for the year. April accrued 6, Sunday was day 7, and Monday will be day 8. Typically our first 80 degree day in Portland comes about May 10th.
Expect clear skies overnight and temperatures may not even dip below 60 for some of you. A heat trough along the coast Sunday will move inland for Monday. The coast will cool off, and the valley to the Cascades to the east will be even warmer.
Even so, Monday won't be as sunny as Sunday, as we'll see increasing clouds into the afternoon and the possibility of some thunderstorms late in the afternoon and early evening. It may feel a bit muggy for some of you later Monday.
A storm system offshore in the Pacific is slated to move onshore Tuesday and cool us off with some showers through Thursday. We'll make a quick return to dry and warmer again by week's end.
Tonight - Clear, Breezy, Warm - 56
Monday - Wind dies down, clouds thicken up, slight chance of PM thundershowers - 85
Tuesday - Cooler, Mostly Cloudy, Chance of Showers Late- 76
