Yesterday was a record breaking day with record daily rainfall reported in North Bend of 2.23″ smashing the old record of 0.57″ set back in 1984. Klamath Falls tied a record low of 23 degrees and Montague broke a record low of 25 degrees, beating the old record of 29 degrees back in 1986.
Today we’ll see increasing sunshine into the early afternoon before shower activity returns late today into early tomorrow morning. Showers diminish during the day tomorrow returning some sunshine by the afternoon for inland areas. East of the Cascades and Siskiyou county are on the outer fringe of shower activity today and will only see a few showers this afternoon. Instability increases east of the Cascades this afternoon and evening and will bring a chance for isolated thunderstorms, mainly in Lake county. Thunderstorms possible in the same area again late Saturday. For your holiday weekend we will be warmer, more seasonable, with sunshine mixed with showers.
Showers look like they will hold off until Saturday afternoon meaning the Boatnik Parade will be dry, but if you’re planning to stay through the even you may want to bring an umbrella. Isolated showers possible again Sunday; it won’t rain all day for your Saturday and Sunday activities and showers will be light. Memorial Day Monday is a different story as a cold front will bring widespread rain and breezy conditions to the area. Weather models right now look to bring significant rainfall to the region on Monday, so any outdoor camping or plans you have for this weekend you may want to wrap up early. If you’re plans are set, be prepared for conditions to change quickly overnight Tuesday into Monday morning.
Isolated showers continue on Tuesday with showers again on Wednesday. As long as we sit in this trough the potential for shower swill be with us, and looking at the long-term, showers look to persist into late next week. Temperatures will remain at or just below normal into next week as well.
