Another Scorcher Today with Storms

The heat is the big story again today. Triple digit temperatures are expected by the afternoons and heat advisories remain in place for the West Side and Northern California. The advisory over Southern Oregon will expire at 10pm tonight but for Siskiyou County it will expire at 10pm tomorrow night.

Skies will be mostly sunny today but will turn partly sunny throughout the afternoon as temperatures climb. Scattered thunderstorms are likely over Siskiyou County later today. These storms will travel north and east, so isolated storms could make their way into Southern Klamath and Lake Counties. These cells will also be slow movers meaning they will be good rain producers. Heavy and measurable rain is possible, in addition to strong winds.

The heat will hang around through tomorrow before finally starting to break into the weekend. The jet stream, which right now is well off to our north, is going to slowly inch south and help to essentially swing open the storm door. This will then bring an area of low pressure just off the coastline.

Skies will be mostly cloudy throughout the weekend at the coast we’ll begin bringing clouds inland Sunday/Monday. More importantly, a gradual cool down through this time period will help knock highs back into the 80’s for inland locations!

For now, have added showers to early next week across the board but this could change to thunderstorms over the next few days.
