A view over Glendale, Ore. this morning. We’ll have a similar setup tomorrow with areas of fog along the coast and some areas inland.
Through the rest of the work week we’ll see sunny and dry conditions with temperatures ranging from warm to hot. Along the coast and a few inland areas for the next couple of days will see some marine layer fog in the morning hours but by the afternoon mostly sunny. Expect windy afternoons along the coast and nice breezes inland through the rest of the work week as well.
As we get to Friday though is when we see the change. The ridge over the nation will shift west bringing in the south heat and also advecting monsoon moisture to the area. The combination of both will lead to not only the hottest day of the year so far, but also a chance for thunderstorms. The Medford area has the best chance to break the almost two year streak with no 100 degree days this weekend. If we don’t break 100 degrees by August 25, when we had the last above 100 day back in 2010, we’ll break another record of the longest time without a 100 degree day! So while I think we’ll surpass 100 this weekend, I hope we hold out!
