Skies will start off partly cloudy this evening but after midnight we will see clearing. There are currently spotty showers along the Coast Range Mountains and also the Cascades due to the cooler temperatures in the higher terrain but as the sun goes down these will diminish and clear skies will prevail. It’s going to be another cold night this evening with patchy fog developing in the Umpqua & Illinois Valleys. The West Side could see some fog as well.
Sunny skies will warm all elevations tomorrow as the upper level trough begins moving eastward. The valleys will warm to the low 60′s and the East Side & Coast will see the low and upper 50′s. By Sunday, offshore flow will develop along the Coast and temperatures will warm to the mid 60′s. This is certainly the weekend to spend outdoors!
For the start of the next work week high pressure will remain in control, with just high clouds developing into the afternoon hours. By Tuesday a storm will pass through bringing light rain showers. Several disturbances will move in from the West but as of now, the weather charts are showing the disturbances staying to our North. Patterns like this from the past seem to trend toward a southerly push, bringing the storms south into our region only a day or two prior, so as of now showers are in the forecast for the end of the week for the Coast but have left the Valley & Basin dry. This may change into next week though.
Have a wonderful weekend!
