Cooler & Wetter By The Weekend

video preview image

Western Siskiyou county saw a few lightning strikes last night when a few storms moved through that lead to some lingering showers this morning with a few of them making their way through southern Jackson, Josephine and Curry counties.  Those showers continue to die out and we’ll see decreasing clouds through the morning for the valleys and the basin with a mix of sun and clouds in northern California today.  If you didn’t get the rain that passed through today, we’ll get an even better chance starting on Friday for the coast with inland areas moving into a wetter pattern over the weekend.

The blocking pattern that’s been situated to our east causing any system that approach our region to pass north of us is going to break down over the next several days and quite a few fronts are on their way. The first one arrives Friday when we’ll see our afternoon temperatures plummet and our best chance for rain since Spring will move in starting Saturday and lingering through the start of next week.  Sunday night into Monday look like the heavier rain days with showers Saturday and Sunday.
