Today has been absolutely gorgeous as a ridge of high pressure is still sitting over us bringing dry conditions, warmer temperatures, and plenty of sunshine. We did start with a bit of fog, mainly in the valley locations; but as temperatures increased, the fog dissipated. As the temperatures overnight Sunday approach the dew point, expect fog to return to the valleys and the Basin.
Sunday will bring an increase in clouds as a weak low pressure system will move to our north. Isolated showers are expected at the coast and in Douglas County. Some stray showers may even make their way into northern Jackson and Klamath Counties. Northern California will mainly just see sun and increasing clouds.
Next week will bring a better chance for rain starting Wednesday night. Models are still in disagreement as to exactly when the next system will move in and if it will move north or south. Snow levels will remain above pass level as we still have warm air entrenched in the area. In the upper levels of the Cascades and Siskiyous we may experience a rain/snow mix towards the end of next week, all other areas will see mostly rain.
Thanks for logging on and enjoy the beautiful weekend.
