High pressure will stick around for one more day tomorrow bringing one last taste of Summer for all areas with plenty of sunshine and a warm afternoon. Tonight will feel more like Fall as another chilly night is on tap and another Freeze Warning goes into effect early tomorrow morning for east side valleys for temperatures potentially dipping to 25 to 35 degrees again. After a chilly morning on Thursday temperatures will rebound quickly in the afternoon feeling like the end of Summer.
A cold front will bring rain to all areas beginning Friday by late morning at the coast and pushing inland through the day. We will see some down-slope drying in areas of southeast Rogue Valley, but by the evening even those spots will see rain. Heaviest rain will fall at the coast and the mountains, but even west side valleys will see moderate to heavy rain at times. The threat for thunderstorms also exists, mainly at the coast Friday then moving inland by Friday afternoon across the region. Slight chance for thunderstorms also exists along and east of the Cascades on Saturday. We will see several fronts pass through this weekend, this first one Friday followed by a brief break Saturday evening into Sunday morning with the next front bringing rain again Sunday afternoon into Monday with isolated showers possible for west side locations into Tuesday.
The main threats of these storms systems include heavy rain, gusty winds, small hail, thunderstorms, high seas in the Pacific and a rain/snow mix possible for our highest mountains including Crater Lake, Mt. Shasta and Mt. Ashland.
