Marine Layer Pushes Inland

As the ridge centered over the four corners starts to shift back to the east we’ll see the marine layer moving further inland over the next several days.  Expect to see thicker fog tomorrow and Sunday in particular.  Today the marine layer stayed further north along the coast, but made it more inland.  As we head into the overnight hours tonight expect to see a few areas in northern Umpqua Basin to see some fog.  Be safe on the roadways during overnight and morning commutes.

We’ll be dealing with the marine layer through weekend which means we’ll start to see a cooling trend through then as well.  With the ridge out of the ridge as well as marine status moving in the area with onshore flow from the ocean we’ll see a drop in temperatures, which will especially be felt in the valleys.
