Mercury Rises Today Under Clear Skies

A new air mass will begin moving into the West today. This is going to send the mercury into the 80’s for West Side Valleys and 90 near Happy Camp. Skies are mostly clear this morning and this is allowing temperatures to drop quite a bit over the region. We’ll start off in the 30’s and 40’s before the big warm up this afternoon.

There is a freeze warning and frost advisory for portions of the Klamath Basin through 9am. Temperatures into Thursday morning do look to improve by about 10 degrees, so we should see the watches/warnings come to an end for the second half of the week.

There are still no big storm systems on the horizon, meaning the next few days will continue to remain dry. We will bring in clouds on Thursday to the Coast, and then bring them inland for the end of the week. Even so, skies inland will be partly sunny. Thursday will be the warmest day of the week as West Side Valleys push 90 but the low to mid 80’s are expected into the weekend.
