More seasonal temperatures in store for Tuesday

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Heat relief has arrived! The stronger overland flow will result in a more seasonal temperature for Portland on Tuesday.

Temperatures will start in the low 50s and lower 60s. Expect morning clouds to filter through the Coast Range and into the Willamette Valley. Not everything will be cloudy, but there will be some places. Temperatures will hit the 70s by lunchtime.

There will be less heat stress if you want to go out for an afternoon walk or if you want to take the pet out for a walk. The wind will be blowing from the southwest at around 10-15 mph. We will end the day with sunshine and temperatures in the mid to upper 70s. This means that we will have around 20 degrees colder than Monday afternoon.

You can browse the weather charts below to find the temperature and weather conditions in your area. Temperatures will still be warm for the lower Columbia Basin Tuesday morning.

Temperatures should be in the mid 70s by 8 or 9 am. Although a mild start to the day, afternoon temperatures are not expected to peak until the mid to upper 80s. There will be cooler air moving across the state by late Tuesday evening.

You will notice that the futurecast picks up light and patchy green areas for the Oregon and Washington coast in the morning. It will be a very uneven light rain that will come out of this strong terrestrial flow.

There shouldn’t be too much rain to start the day otherwise. Weather models are keeping some clouds in early afternoon, before throwing them out of the picture later in the day.

Expect a pleasant sunset in the Willamette Valley today, with plenty of sunshine east of the Cascades.
