Transitioning to Fall

video preview image

This week will definitely be a transition week into Fall with Summer-like days and Autumn-like days. After a beautiful Monday we’ll see showers move in after midnight at the coast then spread inland during the day with a chance for isolated thunderstorms. From the Cascades west the chance for thunderstorms is slight and will be in the morning then push east into the afternoon. While most showers tomorrow will be light, we could see periods of moderate showers from the Cascades west and of course any thunderstorms that form can produce heavy rain, gusty winds and lightning.

Shower activity will diminish into the afternoon and clouds clearing overnight Tuesday will mean a chilly start to the day both Wednesday and Thursday, especially east of the Cascades where a Freeze Watch has already been issued by the National Weather Service. Midweek will be a brief taste of Summer again with warming temperatures and plenty of sun, then we get thrown right back into Fall late Friday as rain returns to the area with another cold front. Rain will continue into Saturday, and this rain event may be what we need to end fire season. We could even see our first bit of snow to the highest mountains like Crater Lake and Mt. Shasta!
