Unseasonable Warmth Soon Over

Yesterday in Medford was the warmest day of the year so far, and today looks to break that warming just a few more degrees this afternoon. The offshore flow that has warmed Brookings into the 60s all week long will end this morning and this weekend for Brookings in particular will be much cooler. A weak cold front will pass this weekend knocking temperatures back to seasonable and bringing a slight chance for light precipitation late Saturday mainly for the the north Coast, Umpqua Divide and Cascades but can’t rule out some precipitation making it’s way to areas further south. Sunday will be dry again for the region.

Late Monday a stronger storm approaches bringing widespread rain and snow, colder temperatures and lower snow levels. Snow levels will drop below pass level by Tuesday morning and may cause travel impacts next week. This next storm is a splitting storm and may impact northern California more so than southern Oregon but we should see measurable precipitation across both states.
