Temperatures have cooled down almost 10 degrees since Saturday. Afternoon highs were in the 70′s in the valleys compared to the mid 80′s we have been seeing the past two days. By Monday we’ll still remain above average, but drop even more so. Afternoon highs will warm to the mid 60′s and low 70′s. The winds are on the rise and are expected to stay that way through Wednesday with an increased pressure gradient across Southern Oregon & Northern California.
An area of low pressure will track to our North through Sunday evening and the course of the day Monday. The associated cold front is responsible for the temperature drop and breezy winds, but the precipitation should stay primarily to our north. The only places facing a slight chance for a sprinkle Monday are northern coastal sections and Crater Lake. Either way, any rain that does fall will be short lived and fairly light. It looks like the best chance for this will be between 10AM & noon.
High pressure then builds back into our region by Tuesday. This means abundant sunshine and warm temperatures will return to the Northwest. This time around temperatures will climb to the upper 80′s and POSSIBLY the low 90′s in the valleys!!!! The Chetco Effect will be at its finest Wednesday and next weekend in Brookings where highs are expected to reach the upper 70′s and low 80′s!
Have a wonderful work week & thanks for logging on! If you have any pictures of the nice weather around the area feel free to send them to my Facebook page! I would love to share them!
