High pressure continues to be the dominant weather feature over our area. This is also keeping the cloud deck over the West Side, preventing temperatures from warming & also preventing fog from forming in the valleys. On the East Side though, temperatures are running much cooler than yesterday and fog has formed again.
The Klamath Basin and Siskiyou County should see clearing into midday unlike yesterday. So outside of the West Side Valleys, quiet and pleasant weather will continue and mild temperatures.
The offshore wind that typically develops with high pressure air masses is going to enhance the Chetco Effect today and through the coming days. This high pressure air mass is reading the highest pressure we have seen across the West in about three years. This means the atmosphere is extremely stable and there is a lot of sinking air, as opposed to rising air which leads to precipitation. Basically the drought conditions will be ongoing through the extended forecast.
