Clear Skies Tonight, Sunny for Sunday

It has been a pleasant weekend so far, as sunny skies have been the main weather pattern for all locations across the viewing area this first weekend of June. The marine layer will push inland this evening and bring some low lying clouds. Patchy fog is possible after midnight, and the onshore flow will allow for light drizzle to fall in isolated places.

A disturbance passes to our North on Sunday, but it is too far north to bring any disruptive weather to Southwest Oregon. Sunny skies will prevail for the second half of the weekend, but temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday. High pressure then builds into the Pacific Northwest by next week. An offshore flow will develop as a thermal trough lifts from the South, warming Brookings into the 80’s on Tuesday, and the inland valleys to the 90’s.

Hot and dry weather will continue for as far out as the next week or so. This will not help with fire development, as the lack of ground saturation & dry Spring does not work in our favor. Winds will have to be monitored closely into this next week as a result. Although fire season has pretty much already begun, the “official” start begins Monday, June 3rd for Jackson & Josephine County. It has already begun in Klamath, Lake, Douglas, and Siskiyou Counties.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
