Zonal flow today brings us a a mix of sun and clouds with mostly sunny skies this afternoon from the coast to the basin and mild temperatures. Tomorrow high pressure will build in bringing abundant sunshine to the viewing area and highs just above normal. The warming trend continues into next week returning some low-90s to west-side valleys, low-80s east of the Cascades and even some mid to upper 80s for the Brookings area as the Chetco Effect ramps up. The clear skies during the day will provide quick warm-ups during the day, but just as quick a cool-down in the overnight areas. This morning Friday morning east of the Cascades we could see areas of frost and freezing temperatures.
Next week a cut-off low will settle off-shore of southern California and could potentially bring a chance for afternoon thunderstorms as far north as Siskiyou county. The instability will be present, but the limiting factor is moisture, for now it’s something to mention and we’ll continue to bring the latest on Newswatch12.
