Return Of Valley fog

video preview image

The tail end of the storm that hit our area yesterday will continue to bring windy conditions for the next couple of days to the coast, mountains and east side. As the low pressure finally exits late Saturday we’ll see a slight chance for snow showers for the mountains and some east side areas like Chemult, Chiloquin and Diamond Lake Summit, with a chance for drizzle at the coast. After this last chance for light precipitation all areas will join in the dry trend as high pressure builds in on Sunday. This will lead to increasing chances for overnight and morning fog with afternoon sunshine for the areas that see the fog and low clouds clear, however, some areas may not see that sunshine, in particular the Grants Pass area. As the high pressure strengthens air will become more stagnant and we’ll have to watch air quality problems yet again.

For the areas that see clearing tonight temperatures will plummet again with some areas on the east side in the low single digits and below freezing on the west side. Be sure to protect any sensitive plants and make sure your outdoor plants have a way to get unfrozen drinking water.

    Hello Megan,

    You often refer to weather in the Brookings area as being under the Chetco Effect. I know some people call it that but isn’t the name really the Brookings Effect. Just wondering. Thanks.
