meteorologist caitlin harvey today: we'll have the chance for isolated to spotty thunderstorms mainly along and east of the cascades throughout the morning. these thunderstorms will likely produce little if any rainfall. the main threat with storms that develop will be lightning strikes on extremely dry fuels. a red flag warning has been issued for eastern siskiyou county, the klamath basin and the cascades until 11 pm tonight. expect more spotty thunderstorms to likely redevelop wednesday afternoon and into the evening hours. a few storms could develop west of the cascades, including in the rogue valley. areas west of the cascades are under a fire weather watch due to the threat for lightning with any thunderstorms to spark new fires. dense smoke and very poor air quality will continue throughout the day. expect afternoon highs to top out in the upper 80s to mid 90s for inland locations and in the mid 60s along the southern oregon coast. tonight: chances for isolated to spotty thunderstorms will continue into tonight. most locations will remain dry, however. smoke and haze will stick with us into the overnight hours, with fog developing along the coast late. overnight lows will bottom out in the 50s and 60s across the region. extended: more storms are possible thursday. friday looks dry with temperatures backing off a bit through late week. this weekend looks quiet with dry weather and warming temperatures. an air quality alert remains in effect across southern oregon until unhealthy to hazardous levels. i'll keep tracking these conditions, and keep you updated to any changes. thanks, caitlin just in time for football season--newswatch 12
