We still have a cool air mass in place, as a longwave trough sits over the Pacific Northwest. This system will shift eastward this evening, and a weak high pressure air mass will move in tomorrow. With low pressure to the north, winds are out of the north and northwest & this is bringing some clouds and moisture in off the ocean. Some light sprinkles are expected again today along the Coast, especially the further north you head. Even in the Valley & the higher terrain a light shower could fall. None of these will amount to anything though. Crater Lake may have some snow flurries coming down as snow levels have dropped to about 6,000.’
Sunny conditions will yield warmer temperatures Friday and into this Father’s Day weekend. Some weak instability will be present the second half of the weekend so isolated thunderstorms are a possibility. Come next week, a stronger closed low is going to bring a lot of moisture inland. Spotty showers are in the forecast for most of the viewing area Monday through Wednesday. Still, showers will be here & there and many locations will remain dry.
