High pressure still sits over our region, continuing to bring us sunny skies and warm temperatures. Today was the warmest day of the year in the Rogue Valley and on the East Side as well. Medford had an afternoon high of 86 and Klamath Falls 76! As we transition into the weekend temperatures are going to gradually cool down. The low 80’s will hang around in the valleys and the low 70’s in the Basin. Temperatures will remain seasonable along the Coastline.
Sunshine will prevail through Saturday but by Sunday high clouds will begin moving in from our north as a weak weather system flattens out the storm track, also displaced to our north. This weak cold front will push south Sunday night into Monday. By Monday all locations should be around normal temperatures for the end of April. Most of the precipitation associated with this system should stay primarily to our north, with the highest chance for light rain in Douglas County.
Winds are going to pick up on the East Side as the storm passes and this could raise the threat for fire weather since the Basin should stay mostly dry through the passing of the front. A period of warm and dry weather will follow this system through next week and another warm up will begin!
