Happy Torchmas Eve! Toasty Temps Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature record high temps across parts of the area but Cold Air Damming is likely to keep the foothills cooler. Look for highs in the 60’s south of Portland, 50’s for the rest of the coast and mountains, and 40’s in inland areas. There is a strong inversion in place today which means that while temps aloft are quite warm, we will have a hard time making full use of them at the surface as colder air is locked in down here. Temps will likely jump in the afternoon as the inversion breaks and if this break occurs earlier, look for warmer temps. Clouds and fog will also inhibit the sun from having tons of impact. Look for fog to develop especially along the coast today and it could be dense at times.
