A weak cold front brought a few high clouds inland and cooler and cloudy conditions to many areas at the coast today and could bring some drizzle tonight at the coast but most will stay dry. The low pressure associated with this front is going to ride north along the ridge slide south in east Oregon moving west into central California, separates from the jetstream and finally finishes its loop offshore of southern Oregon! The main impact this week is bringing gusty winds late Thursday into Friday morning, and with how dry we’ve been the NWS has issued a Fire Weather Watch for dry conditions and gusts up to 30mph. Once again keep fire safety in mind even though we are not in fire season. With fog clearing the sun is acting to dry out the ground, at least with the fog moisture is held into the ground…of course not all areas are seeing the fog and thus this help.
The cut-off low is going to push inland at some point next week and at this time it is set to arrive Tuesday, however since it is still a week away and cut-off lows are not handled well with weather models that will likely change. Stay tuned to Newswatch12 for this next chance for showers! Thanks for logging on and have a great evening!
