A weak cold front will bring increasing clouds tonight and a slight chance for showers early Friday morning, many at the coast and higher elevations though shower activity will be light and isolated. The front will be out of here quickly bringing sunshine and mild conditions by Friday afternoon with sunshine through the weekend. The chetco effect will return at the coast and all along the Chetco River temperatures will climb into the 60s, perhaps even as high as the 70s for some locations. Winds will also pick up at the coast and a Hazardous Seas Warning is in place though early Saturday; also breezy on the ridges though winds won’t make it into the valleys which means stagnant air will remain in place. You can check current air quality levels on the weather homepage under weather links.
A more active weather pattern is set to arrive late Monday with isolated light showers possible at the coast and Cascades with a slight chance elsewhere. Tuesday a front will bring a better chance for widespread showers with isolated showers continuing into Wednesday.
Thanks for logging on and I hope you get to see a few meteors from the Quadrantids shower tonight, for more watch the video on the homepage!
