The high pressure ridge that has been sitting over the West for the last week or so is finally beginning to break down. An area of low pressure in the Eastern Pacific is meandering around the California coastline. Despite it’s close distance, our weather into the next several days will see little impacts.
Afternoon highs are gradually going to cool into the next few days, but will still remain above normal. Come Monday, an upper level disturbance will drop south into the Pacific Northwest. This will bring in a very cold air mass and high temperatures will significantly drop, to about 15-20 degrees lower than what is currently in place.
Little will come in the way of wet weather with this system. Snow levels will drop to 4,000’-5,000’ and if any showers do move into our region, although most will remain to the East, this will be in the Klamath Basin and will most likely be in the form of snow. The cool temperatures will remain in place through much of the week.
