Cloud cover is streaming in from the South and West, bringing some light showers to the Coastline this morning. This trend is expected through much of the day, with the band of clouds beginning to move inland through the course of the day. Temperatures are going to be a few degrees cooler compared to yesterday for all areas south and west of the Cascades. The East Side will be slightly warmer today, and mostly clear until late afternoon.
Thursday will bring fall temperatures, as the upper level disturbance bringing the cloud cover to the region moves inland. As it drives east, showers and isolated thunderstorms will develop across Southern Oregon. It looks like Northern California will stay dry through this event, and thunderstorms will be for Jackson, Josephine, Klamath & Lake Counties. The thunderstorm threat is minimal, given the recent rains over the past few weeks, the cooler temperatures moving in and the high relative humidities (and high fuels). For these reasons, the National Weather Service has not issued a Fire Weather Watch or Red Flag Warning.
The fall temperatures won’t stay in place for long, by Friday temperatures are warming back up again and skies clearing.
