A dense fog advisory is in place for all counties other than Lake this morning. This includes the Southern Oregon Cascades as well & will expire at 10am. Even Ashland has visbilities down to 0. The fog and clouds will be tough to break today and if you didn’t see sun yesterday, you likely will not see it again today.
Into the weekend though, a very weak front will approach from the West. This will “help” to mix things up a bit, and may or may not ease some of the fog into the weekend. We’ve been in this situation many times already the past two months and it doesn’t seem as though any weak fronts can help shake the fog and low cloud deck. Either way, fog will still be present in the mornings …if we do end up seeing enough mixing of the air that allows the clouds/fog to break in the afternoon Saturday, high temperatures will be a little warmer. If not, we will continue to sit in the 30′s for highs.
This front falls apart by the time it makes it to the Coast so the only chance for any isolated shower activity is for Curry & Coos Counties on Saturday. Drizzle is also in the forecast for Sunday here. A ridge of high pressure will continue to bring us dry conditions through the end of this week and through much of next week as well. For this reason, the air stagnation advisory has been extended through Tuesday.
