A small disturbance in the Pacific is moving towards the coast. Ahead of it is a weak cold front that is expected to bring cloud coverage to our area. These clouds will move in overnight Tuesday and will persist through Wednesday. As the system approaches the high pressure that is siting over our area, it will break down. The only precipitation expected to fall on Wednesday will be at the northern fringe of the coast region near the Bandon and Coos Bay area. All other locations should just see cloud coverage. Most of the rain that will fall will enter the dry air mass and evaporate before reaching the ground.
High pressure will build back in on Thursday and the dry, sunny weather will continue throughout the weekend. If you plan to attend the Pear Blossom Festival, conditions will be beautiful. You may want to pack a light jacket as temperatures will start out on the cool side, but we will be warming up quickly as the day progresses. The best chance for the next round of precipitation will be next week; however models are unclear as to when it will arrive.
Thanks for logging on and enjoy your day!
