stormwatch 12 weather tonight: blustery winds in our westside valleys through this evening. otherwise, mainly clear but hazy and smoky skies for and smoke will linger for the rest of the week and with lack of winds overnight and through the morning, this will allow the smoke to notice. hazy skies and air quality will be an issue for all of southern oregon and northern california for the rest of the week. the smoke will also keep temperatures a bit cooler. highs through much of the area will be in the 80s and 90s for your thursday. extended: temperatures will be warmer for the coast the next couple of days, especially, in the brookings area thanks to the chetco effect. temperatures inland will remain above average through the rest of the week. we'll see very dry air and gusty late day winds in our valleys for thursday and friday. fire danger will remain a big issue with those conditions. we should stay dry across the area through friday, but we are keeping an eye on storm chances for this weekend. at this time they look slim with the best chance in northern california. uncertainity is high and things could change in the days ahead. it does look like temperatures heat back up again into next week. hopefully you can enjoy some of the upcoming weather. thanks.
