Light Sprinkle Saturday, Sunny Sunday

If you have outdoor plans this weekend, the weather shouldn’t be making too much of an impact. In fact, it should be fairly nice. A weak shortwave will move through Oregon Saturday, bringing very light and isolated showers first to the Coast beginning earlier in the day. This system will progress further inland throughout the course of the day, bringing a slight chance for a sprinkle in the Valley and an occasional shower to the mountains & Northern Siskiyou County. Most of the Valley should see mostly cloudy and dry conditions Saturday.

By Sunday evening weak ridging will build in and make for partly to mostly sunny conditions across the viewing area. Temperatures will stay on the cooler side through next week, but these temperatures only feel cooler because we’ve had such a mild spring so far. They are actually rather seasonable!

Sunny skies continue into Monday before clouds begin increasing ahead of our next storm system. This stronger and deeper low is similar to the one we had several weeks ago which sparked the thunderstorms across the area. At this point, the main energy remains to our North, over Northern Oregon and Washington State. However, this could change in the coming days and it is something we will have to monitor.

For now, TGIF! Enjoy the weekend!
