The cooler air that moved into the region Thursday kept today’s daytime highs below normal. In some cases, highs were more than ten degrees less than their seasonal average. The cloud cover and spotty showers also present today will be exiting the area, allowing for a fairly nice weekend ahead.
Because the skies are clearing tonight east of the Cascades and in northern California, those places will see unseasonably cool temperatures early Saturday. Keep in mind that a freeze warning and frost advisory are in effect for portions of Lake, Klamath, Siskiyou, and Modoc counties from 2 AM until 7 AM Saturday morning. Temperatures could drop as low as the upper 20′s in areas under the freeze warning, but more populated areas will see temperatures near or just above freezing.
Father’s Day holds just a few clouds for most, but another weak cold front swings through at the beginning of next week. Temperatures Monday will fall off by a few degrees as a result. Just a reminder that beginning Monday, the fire danger level for Josephine and Jackson county will be raised to High (yellow). As the work week progresses, temperatures will finally climb back above average and remain so to start the weekend.
Thanks for logging on. Have a great weekend.
