The heat will peak today and temperatures will trend 5-7 degrees warmer than midweek. Mostly sunny skies are in the forecast across the board although with the instability present, cumulus build ups are likely along the Cascades, in the Basin & over Northern California. A pop-up thunderstorm and a few showers are possible this afternoon in these locations, but overall it will be a mostly dry day.
More clouds will move in for Friday and a better chance for afternoon showers and a few rumbles of thunder along and east of the Cascades. Saturday will bring drier air and more sun. Mostly sunny skies will keep temperatures warm for the first half of the weekend.
By Sunday, another round of clouds will move in and temperatures will cool into Memorial Day. There will likely be a few light showers at the Coastline Monday morning, and some of these showers may travel into Josephine County. Aside from this, the day will be dry and gradually clearing skies are expected.
