A weak disturbance passing through the east side today will hold the high pressure offshore which means the Chetco Effect will still be in full-swing today warming Brookings back into the 80s today! For areas on the west side expect to see temperatures right around where we were yesterday just maybe a few degrees warmer. It will be breezy again this afternoon and windy at the higher elevations, potential gusts from 20 to 30 mph.
Tomorrow the thermal low will shift inland as the high pressure shifts closer to the shore which will end the Chetco Effect, drastically cooling the Brookings area while inland areas will see a warm up! We’ll see the warmest days of the year so far tomorrow through Saturday when a cold front late Sunday into Monday will bring more clouds, cooler temperatures and a chance for showers to Douglas and Curry counties and higher elevations. While most areas will stay dry the winds will pick up, that combined with the cooler temperatures it will feel significantly cooler after this unseasonably warm week!
