On Wednesday, a few showers moved through the area and brought small amounts of rainfall. It’s all along an old frontal boundary that is drifting back towards the north. As it does so, showers will taper off Wednesday night, but a few showers are still possible for coastal locations through Wednesday night into Thursday.
Aside from a few coastal showers Thursday, the area will be getting a break from the wet stuff. Clouds will stick around though, before then next cold front approaches the area. We have been watching this cold front for some time since it directly impacts the forecast for Halloween and trick-or-treating. Models have been relatively consistent with this system, and for now, it still looks like we are going to see scattered showers all through the area on Friday and Friday evening, but the heaviest, steadiest rainfall will move through earlier in the day.
After the front passes Friday morning, we will not only be seeing showers, but gusty winds. This is true for the Klamath Basin, Shasta Valley, and the coast. By Friday night, temperatures will start to drop, so for the mountain passes and higher terrain, keep an eye on the weather as snow levels will be dropping. Showers will be more isolated on Saturday, and by the weekend, we will dry out and keep a few clouds in place.
