The first round of rain today is moving through the region this morning and will bring periods of rain across the viewing area, with the bulk of this first system hitting east of the Cascades. This rain will ease up through the morning and by late morning on the east side with isolated to scattered showers continuing this afternoon and some areas dry for the most part by mid-morning. Some inland areas will see some sunshine before the next round of rain moves in tonight.
This second round tonight will tap into the tropical moisture plume even more so than the last storms. This will bring more decent rain to the west side, including areas of the Rogue Valley that haven’t seen much rain with the last systems. The coast and northern California will start to see decent rain around 8/9 tonight then moving inland through the evening. The bulk of the rain will fall by tomorrow morning with scattered showers for the most part tomorrow. A few light showers will continue Wednesday with more sunshine.
High pressure from the Midwest builds into the Pacific Northwest pushing this storm track north and returning dry, sunny and hot weather to our area. Expect highs to jump about 20 degrees for inland areas in just two days from Tuesday to Thursday! Highs will be about 5 to 10 degrees above normal with temperatures reaching into the mid-90s for the west side valleys and Siskiyou county and mid-80s on the east side and low-70s for areas of the coast.
