Increasing Sunshine On The Way

video preview image

With high pressure just off shore we’ll continue to see weak systems slide down the front side bringing light precipitation to mainly areas to our northwest but areas of Coos and Douglas county could see more light rain today and the Cascades could see some snow showers at times today. Areas further to the south will mainly be influenced by more clouds through the day today with periods of sunshine. High pressure will shift inland on our Valentine’s Day and that will provide for decreasing clouds and increasing afternoon high’s through Friday. An Air Stagnation Advisory is still in effect for the east side through Saturday and when the high strengthens Thursday and Friday we’ll see pollutants increase.

Friday will be the warmest day of the week before a weak cold front passes Saturday into Sunday dropping temperatures and bringing in a chance for light precipitation for the weekend with the best chance at the higher elevations. A stronger storm system moves in late Monday into Tuesday bringing widespread precipitation to the state. It’s been close to three weeks since we’ve seen a storm system bring similar precipitation amounts.
