Offshore flow, also known as the Chetco Effect, warmed Brookings this afternoon to a warm 83 degrees! A stronger pressure gradient also brought gusty winds to the ridges and Coastline. High pressure it still sitting over the region, bringing sunny skies and very dry conditions. Afternoon highs are still remaining very well above average for this time of year.
Clear skies will hang around this evening, but temperatures aren’t expected to be as cold as last night in the valleys. For this reason, we are in the clear for frost advisories & freeze warnings. Sunny and warm weather will continue into the weekend. Again, offshore flow is expected in Brookings come Saturday. Highest afternoon temperatures look to be in the low 80’s for Brookings & the mid 80’s for the valleys. The Basin will see highs in the low to mid 70’s.
By Sunday, overall flow will change across the region. Some moisture will filter in as a shortwave begins pushing in from our south. This will bring the chance for thunderstorms through the beginning and middle of the next work week.
Thanks for logging on!
