Keeping it Cooler

video preview image


The area of low pressure that entered the area today brought clouds and a few spotty showers to the coast, while the Rogue Valley saw partly cloudy skies and gusty winds.  Temperatures were several degrees cooler today than yesterday, but the cooler temperatures are not done making an impact.

Tomorrow a few isolated showers are still possible along the coast.  The valley may see a sprinkle or two during the morning hours, but the afternoon will be partly cloudy with highs a few degrees below average.  Northern California and the Klamath Basin will stay dry with only a few clouds.

By Saturday morning, mainly clear skies in the Klamath Basin and Modoc county will create a scenario favorable for a frost or freeze.  Mostly clear skies will allow for radiational cooling, where heat absorbed by the earth’s surface during the daytime escapes into the atmosphere overnight.  As a result, a freeze warning is in effect for eastern Klamath county and Lake county for Saturday morning.  There is also a frost advisory for areas east of the Cascades and northern California that is in effect early Saturday morning.  Sensitive plants should be covered or brought inside as a precaution.   The entire region will be dry on Father’s Day, with pleasant temperatures in place.  Keep in mind, at the beginning of next week, the fire danger level will be increased to high (yellow) for Josephine and Jackson counties.

Thanks for logging on.  Have a great night.
