Today will start off very mild with some sunshine for inland areas and with a warm front pushing into the area we’ll see temperatures even warmer than yesterday and about ten to fifteen degrees above normal this afternoon. Things change as we head into the afternoon though as the approach of a cold front will bring increasing winds along and east of the Cascades and rain showers. We could see some isolated showers by mid-morning at the coast but most areas will remain dry until this afternoon and the further east and south you head you’ll hold off on the rain until this evening and overnight. Most of the day for northern California will be dry and sunny with the showers holding off until this evening and most showers will occur overnight and winds will pick up as well. Snow levels will be above pass level and not expecting hazardous travel tonight.
Tomorrow we return to a drier and sunnier pattern a trend. A big weekend for outdoor activity with the Pear Blossom Run, parade and festival and we could see showers. Weather models do not have a good grasp on the weekends system so confidence is only moderate on what to expect Saturday. A cold front will pass to our north and may shift south enough to bring showers to the Rogue Valley, but I think showers will hold off until the afternoon so the parade and run should be dry. We will continue to monitor this system and bring you the most up to date forecast through the week. For now, if you plan to stay all day for the festival you should prepare for some showers, but it will not be a wash out. The best chance for showers Saturday are at the coast into Douglas county.
