High pressure is keeping the storm track to our north & dry weather in place across Southern Oregon. This is allowing for chilly temperatures in the morning. These temperatures can be damaging to the early blooming fruit trees across the Valley, in particular nectarines, peaches and pears. Orchardists should keep a close eye on morning temperatures into the weekend and use wind machines overnight to prevent temperatures from threatening fruits.
A weak front will sweep through the state into this evening but rain will stay to our north. Aside from high clouds and a light sprinkle or two, there will be no impacts this far south.
The weekend will remain dry and the skies mostly clear for the weekend. A gradual warming trend will bring afternoon highs well above average again into Saturday and Sunday. By Tuesday, an area of low pressure to our west will bring some moisture in the way of showers to the region …but these showers won’t drop much in measurable rain.
