Marine Layer Moves In To Stay

Winds have calmed at the coast which is allowing the marine layer to make it’s way to the area.  Saw dense fog this morning and expecting that to be the case through the weekend.  A few areas inland may see some fog overnight and in the morning, and it’s looking like the best chance for the marine layer to make it inland is going to be on Friday.

While the coast will be dealing with fog in the mornings, along and northeast of the Cascades has a chance for isolated thunderstorms in the afternoon.  We’ve seen a couple storms develop over the past couple days most staying to the east in Modoc and Lake counties, but for today the best chance will be in north Klamath county and along the Cascade Range.  The Cascades continues to have a chance for thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon.

Today will be the hottest day of the week inland before an upper-level low located near Alaska starts to shift east pushing the ridge over the western USA back to the east allowing for a brief cool down through early next week.  While temperatures will be in the low-90s for the next couple of days a return to below average will ensue for the weekend.

Thanks for logging on and stay cool out there!
