Winds are currently out of the north, still bringing in some cooler air but slowly winds will shift and high pressure will then build into our region. Temperatures Wednesday afternoon were several degrees below average. Thursday afternoon, will be several degrees above average for the first time in a week or so. It will be a slow warm up to the day however, as temperatures will start off the in the low to mid 30’s for the West Side. A frost advisory is in place this evening for many of the valleys and parts of Siskiyou County as well. This includes Yreka, Glendale, Grants Pass, Cave Junction, & Medford.

Originally, a dry and warm trend continued through Friday and into the weekend. At this point, the computer models are showing a weak disturbance inching in from our North through the course of the day. The heaviest precipitation will be across Central and Northern Oregon, however precipitation intensity could very well change by tomorrow. For now, it looks like scattered showers will begin by late morning and begin to taper off into early evening.

By Saturday sunny high pressure then becomes the dominant weather feature into next week. Temperatures will even reach the upper 70’s and low 80’s by midweek in the valleys!
