Thanks to cloud cover temperatures did not dip to that critical value to cause crop damage and overnight temperatures through the week will not be near freezing. The afternoon highs will be back to at or above normal for the rest of the workweek with the west side valleys back in the mid-60s and low-70s and upper-50s and mid-60s for the east side. Today high pressure will battle clouds to our north with partly cloudy skies for inland areas with periods of mostly sunny skies, especially in Siskiyou county and Klamath and Lake counties.
A warm front tomorrow will warm temperatures even more but the associated cold front will bring showers to the area by tomorrow afternoon with only isolated showers east of the Cascades late in the day. Winds will also pick up tomorrow afternoon mainly along and east of the Cascades. Dry and sunny conditions return Thursday and Friday with temperatures once again about 10 to 15 degrees above normal.
This weekend high pressure will be sitting just south of Oregon and a cold front will brush just north of the Rogue Valley and could potential bring showers to Medford for the Pear Blossom Festival. As of now I’m keeping a chance, but keeping my fingers crossed that the high pressure will build in stronger and keep showers north including Douglas and Curry counties. This is a system we will have to monitor as weather models do not have a strong grasp on it this far out.
