Warmest Days of The Year Ahead!

A weak disturbance will bring the chance for light showers again today, mainly this afternoon, but we will see more periods of sunshine during the day today. Due to the warm weather there is more instability around in the afternoon so we could see a few isolated thunderstorms mainly at the higher elevations. Temperatures will climb to 10 to 15 degrees above normal (the warmest of the year so far!) over the next several days as southerly flow ushers in the warm weather from the Southwest. That’s not all that’s going to be ushered in this weekend though.

A cut-off low pressure will move into Central California and the wrap around moisture will bring a chance for showers into Southern Oregon, a better chance for Siskiyou county with Southern Oregon really on the outer fringe of showers. The question is how far north the cut-off low goes, the further north it moves the better chance for showers, but a high pressure off to our north will get in on the mix and for those looking for a dry Easter we are hoping the high pressure wins this battle keeping showers out of our region this weekend. I suggest preparing for a possibility of a shower late Saturday and Easter Sunday and maybe not seeing one; better safe then sorry!
