Afternoon Sun ...

After some morning rain, the sun burst out and Thursday became a record-setting warm day with a high temp of 60 degrees. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen Friday.

The National Weather Service says a ridge of high pressure will build in Friday and stick around through early next week, offering up dry days through Wednesday. But temperatures will be only a few degrees above normal during that period.

If today felt like spring to you, your body wasn't lying. Today's temperatures were more typical of early April than late January.

The calm and dry days may also start out foggy. Such is the case Friday where morning fog was seen on road cameras in the Tigard and Tualatin areas about 5:30 a.m. Once any fog clears, Portland should have partly sunny skies and highs of about 48, about average for mid January.

Fog is even more likely Saturday, especially in areas south of Portland, including Salem, Woodburn and Albany. Widespread low clouds and/or fog may help keep temperatures cooler in areas where fog takes longer to burn off. Once the fog clears, skies will be sunny, and temperatures should reach about 51 degrees. In areas where the fog lingers into the day, temperatures may struggle to make it into the mid 40s.

The weather service also mentions concerns about the possibility of air stagnation, where low level air doesn’t get mixed out because of high pressure, and pollutants get trapped at the surface. Forecasters will be watching air quality levels into next week for signs of unhealthy air.

Sunday may start with some brief morning fog, but then skies should clear to sunny for the rest of the day. High temperatures will be in the low 50s.

The extended forecast is showing dry and calm mild winter weather through at least Wednesday. Fog is likely in the mornings.

The national 10-day outlook forecasts are showing below normal chances of precipitation through Jan. 29, and about average temperatures.
