We saw scattered light rain showers once again today, but nothing like the steady rain from Wednesday and Wednesday night. It makes sense that rainfall amounts from today were less than yesterday, but many locations did record measurable rain. Coastal locations saw the highest amounts, but portions of the Klamath Basin saw as much as a quarter of an inch Thursday.
Rain chances continue for Friday with another weaker system moving onshore. The best chances, and thus highest amounts, will once again fall along the coast. But isolated showers are possible elsewhere, with the exception of northern California – they will stay mainly dry with mostly cloudy skies. A few spotty showers stick around on the coast Saturday, but all other areas with begin to see clearing skies.
The sunshine is back in full force by next week as a high pressure ridge builds in to the area. Temperatures are not only going to be back above average, but near records. Portions of northern California will flirt with the century mark, and the Rogue Valley will hit the middle 90′s. The Klamath Basin will almost reach 90 by Tuesday.
