The storm system that came through last night and today is beginning to lift north and east. Showers are beginning to wrap up along the Coast and cloud cover is breaking. The strong onshore flow today allowed for heavy rain along the higher terrain of the Coastal Range Mountains, and light rainfall in the lower elevations of the Coastline. Very spotty showers may develop tonight in Curry and Coos County, but inland areas will remain dry.
Friday is shaping up very nicely, and so is most of this holiday weekend. Temperatures will continue warming through Saturday, and clear skies will bring nice outdoor weather to the region. Sunday an approaching storm system to our west will start spreading it’s winds into the afternoon — bringing cloud cover inland Sunday evening. This will allow for isolated showers to develop over the viewing area. Isolated thunderstorms will also be in the forecast, but this is primarily for the East Side and the Cascades.
Overall the system is nothing like it was a week ago, and not very impressive. If picnics, barbecues or outdoor plans are scheduled, don’t be too concerned! It’s certainly possible many locations never even see a sprinkle!
