AM Fog & PM Sun for West Side Valleys

Very little changes since yesterday have come to the forecast. High temperatures have been raised across the Rogue Valley through the end of the week because more mixing and earlier clearing is anticipated. The fog and clouds should clear out and erode a little quicker than recent days — allowing for more sun through the afternoons.

A weak cut-off low will be moving into the area for Wednesday & Thursday, but the disturbance is moisture deprived and the main impact is just going to be cloud cover. This will cool the higher elevations a few degrees but the dry weather will be on going.

As this system tries to exit the region towards the end of the week, it will enhance the Chetco Effect and bring continued mixing to the West Side Valleys. For now, it looks like fog will mainly be a morning impact through Friday. Highs on Thursday & Friday at the Coast should easily climb into the 60’s, and most likely the lower 70’s.

For now, the weekend is looking dry and sunny across all areas outside of the Valley where fog will gradually burn off to clear skies into the afternoons.
