Nice Weather Tue/Wed, Storm on Horizon

A split jet-stream pushed most of the storm northward into Washington and the Northern Rockies, with a southern split headed into California and Nevada.  This left Southern Oregon and Northern California dry but breezy…and cooler.

The flow will keep some clouds and sunny periods over the region through Wednesday, but a stronger cold front will develop Wednesday night and move slowly inland Thursday and Friday.  Rain will fall along the Coast, in Josephine and Douglas Counties and across the Cascades, while some light rain and showers are expected in Medford, Jackson County and Siskiyou County Thursday and Friday.

High pressure and partly cloudy weather will return just in time for the weekend and early next week.  Highs will be near or slightly above normal.
