Temps to warm into the 80s for weekend

Temperatures will continue to warm up in the valley heading into the weekend, before dropping again early next week.

The National Weather Service said that highs will get into the 80s this weekend, which will be well above the average high of the low 70s for this time of year.

“We’ll be warming up slowly through the weekend and topping out in the lower 80s,” said Dan Berc, National Weather Service meteorologist.

“Then we’ve got a weather system that’s going to move into the Pacific Northwest early next week, but I don’t expect it to bring us any rain early in the week.”

There will be breezy conditions blowing into town at the beginning of the work week and temperatures will drop down into the 70s.

“We will get pretty breezy Monday into Tuesday, but other than that there’s no significant chance of precipitation.”

Berc explained that there is a slight chance for rain as we get into Wednesday, but it is too early to know just what kind of shot that is at this time.

High temperatures will top out around 81 degrees today and Saturday and peak at 83 degrees come Sunday.

Monday will hover around 79 degrees then after the winds blow through, lower temperatures will follow, with high temps dropping to 73 degrees Tuesday and bottoming out at around 69 degrees Wednesday.

Things will heat back up Thursday with an expected high of around 72 degrees. Lows throughout the week will range between 54 and 45 degrees.
