A cold front is sweeping through the Northwest today, bumping down high temperatures a bit from yesterday. Still, it will be a warm afternoon with a good deal of sun. Low lying clouds are hugging the coastline and blanketing much of Josephine County and the Cascades. Low lying clouds will burn off throughout the morning and all inland locations will become mostly sunny. Clouds at the coast will make way for partly to mostly sunny skies by the afternoon.
Saturday will bring warmer temperatures as skies stay mostly sunny. The second half of the weekend a ridge of high pressure will build into the West temporarily. This is going to bring highs into the 90′s for both Sunday and Monday over Northern California and across West Side Valleys.
There are some signs of rainfall in the near future. An area of low pressure looks to move in from the south by mid to late week, next week. This could bring thunderstorms to the West Side. For now, much of the region has rain showers in the forecast for Thursday afternoon and evening.
