Short term...tonight through Thursday night...an upper level trough
will deepen off the coast overnight and Tuesday which will build a
ridge of high pressure over the region through early Wednesday. Then
the trough will move inland pushing a cold front across the forecast
area on Wednesday with some limited moisture. There could be a band
of light precipitation associated with the frontal passage which
will exit the area late Wednesday night. There could even be a
slight chance of thunderstorms over far northeast Oregon Wednesday
evening. The front will usher in some cooler and breezy conditions
which will linger into Thursday.

Long term...Friday through Monday. West to northwest flow will
continue through much of the extended period with dry conditions. A
weak cool front will track across the Pacific northwest on Saturday
with some gusty winds and slightly cool air for Sunday. Temperatures
will be near seasonal levels. 93
