Weaker T-Storms This Evening

The weather pattern that has been in place over the past week has now broken down. Showers and thunderstorms still remain in the forecast though and are expected into this evening. A good amount of moisture is present in our atmosphere, and in addition to that temperatures are 5-10 degrees warmer this afternoon. For these reasons conditions supporting thundershower activity once again. However, with temperatures aloft beginning to warm, convection should be weaker and short-lived compared to yesterday and diminish towards midnight. The favored areas will be the East Side once again, Siskiyou County, and the Cascades.

A high pressure ridge will begin to shift eastward this evening and sunny skies will prevail in the morning. A slight chance will remain for scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms by late afternoon and this chance will continue into Saturday, becoming less of a threat.

Expect clouds to begin increasing later in the day Saturday and Sunday as well. A cold front will weaken as it approaches the Coastline, but should stay fairly to our North as it pushes onshore Sunday. The best chance for a shower will be along the Coast & Coastal Range Mountains but Sunday night through Monday very light and isolated showers will push further inland.

Thanks for logging on!
