Cold Nights, Warmer Afternoons

Today we have a chance for isolated light snow showers in the higher terrain including some areas of Coos and Douglas county. Other areas will remain dry, a trend that continues into the weekend as high pressure slowly moves into our region over the weekend reinstating that blocking pattern that will keep storm system’s to our north. A system will slide over the ridge tomorrow, but we’ll remain dry with just a few more clouds moving in. Sunday and Monday we’ll finally return to the 60’s in the west side valleys and mid-50’s for the east side, and near 70 for the west side for Monday and 60’s further east. During this time northern California will remain dry relatively clear and as they it will be more under the influence of the high pressure ridge.

With fewer clouds we’ll see quick warm up’s during the day, but just as quick cool downs in the overnight hours dropping to the teens on east of the Cascades, below freezing for areas further west and mid-30s at the coast.
