Cooling a Bit For Friday

High pressure has been in control over the past couple of days, and that meant mostly sunny skies for the first half of Thursday.  Throughout the afternoon, clouds started rolling in, and that will continue into the evening.   It’s a sign that the weather pattern is once again shifting, with another low pressure system poised to make its way onshore over the next 24 hours.

Along with the cloudy skies, this system and its associated cold front will bring us slightly cooler temperatures for tomorrow.  As far as rain chances, the north coast could see a shower, as well as the northern mountains.  Elsewhere along the coast, places like Brookings and Crescent City will see fog before noon on Friday.  Saturday is the first official day of summer, and temperatures will warm back up just in time for a dip in the pool or an afternoon bbq.  While the coast and the basin will see a few clouds, all other locations can expect lots of sunshine.

Even the beginning of next week will be sunny, but a stronger, more potent storm system, looks to make an impact by Wednesday into Thursday.  Temperatures will not drop significantly, but rain chances are in the forecast for all areas in southern Oregon and northern California.
