Offshore Winds Warm Up the Coast

The weather continues to remain inactive this week. An offshore wind weather pattern will set up the next 48 hours keeping coastal communities mild through Tuesday night. Temperatures will easily climb into the 70’s and 80’s here. Unfortunately offshore winds drop the moisture content in the air across inland locations. Between low relative humidities, warmer temperatures and afternoon breezes, this week will pose a threat for fire crews. Increased fire behavior is likely with the existing wildfires.

For inland locations these next couples of days will remain sunny and warm. A warming trend will bring temperatures into the upper 80’s east of the Cascades by Wednesday, and the upper 90’s for the valleys. Poor air quality readings continue in Siskiyou County as of Monday morning, however I do feel that the easterly component in the winds the next two days will help to carry smoke westward. This will likely improve readings in some locations of Siskiyou County.

Temperatures will cool down into the weekend as clouds move in. This will keep conditions at the coast cloudy and foggy. I have yet to add any showers or storms into the forecast through this time period, however this could change into the coming days.
