Thunderstorms Back in the Forecast

video preview image

A closed-low that has been rotating off shore for several days will begin to push inland during the day Wednesday and this will bring our first chance for showers and thunderstorms. Thunderstorm activity tomorrow will be isolated and mainly along and east of the Cascades. The low will settle over the Pacific Northwest on Thursday ushering in a chance for showers and thunderstorms to all areas, even a slight chance at the coast. Thunderstorm potential will be isolated from the coast to the Cascades with scattered storms along and east of the Cascades; northern California will be too far south for much thunderstorm activity, any storms that do form would be in the Siskiyou’s, however you could see scattered showers.

A high pressure in the Pacific will begin to build into the area Friday into early next week, this will bring calmer, drier and warmer weather to all areas. Before the warming trend begins though we’ll see cooling temperatures into Thursday and Friday morning will be one of the coolest mornings we’ve seen since Summer began! Temperatures return to normal by the weekend and even warmer into next week.

Thanks for logging on and have a great day!
