High pressure currently sits over our region. Sunny skies have allowed for temperatures to warm significantly, especially in the Valley. Medford hit it’s warmest day of the year thus far, with the afternoon temperature peaking at 91 degrees. Klamath Fall did so as well, reaching 81 degrees for the first time this year. On the other hand, the marine layer along the Coast has kept temperatures more seasonable.
Very isolated convection is expected this afternoon and evening. Any storms that do develop are expected to be short lived and slow moving. Instability will decrease even more so into the day tomorrow, decreasing also, the threat for thunderstorms.
For this reason, outdoor activities are a go this weekend! Mostly sunny skies and very warm conditions will continue into Saturday. Very isolated and weak showers or storms may develop into the late afternoon, but most areas should stay dry.
By Sunday, some high clouds will begin pushing in from our west. A cold front is going to bring in a cooler air mass into Monday but it looks as though most of the precipitation will stay to our north. Many have plans to head to the Coastline this weekend and this will be the area that has the best chance for seeing a light shower later Sunday afternoon. Another disturbance on the back end of this system will continue to bring showers through Monday. By this time, all places across the viewing area will see more seasonable conditions.
Mothers, enjoy your special weekend!
