Stray Shower or Storm Today

An upper level low continues to spin over the Western half of the country. This is still bringing unstable air to the region today, allowing for a few stray showers and a chance for storms to continue in the Klamath Basin, the Cascades & Northern California for later today.

About 500 lightning strikes were reported yesterday — mainly in the Basin & over Northern California. The threat for today, will be much less than that of yesterday and activity will be sparse.

By tonight, drier air begins to settle into the Northwest. A high pressure ridge will begin moving in, bringing more sun and warming temperatures through Thursday. Offshore winds will start setting up today and strengthen into the coming days, warming afternoon temperatures into the 70’s at the Coastline through Thursday.

By Friday, we’ll switch back to an onshore wind, bringing in more clouds. The storm track will shift just to our north, keeping periods of clouds around for the holiday weekend. For now, Memorial Day looks to be dry for inland locations but there may be some early morning showers at coastal sections. This could certainly change into the coming days though.
