Today: We'll see more sunshine and even hotter temperatures today across the region. The Chetco Effect will bring the coast into the 70s and 80s to near 90 degrees at Brookings with smoke from the Klondike Fire. Inland, afternoon highs will climb into the upper 80s and lower 90s for the westside, and into the upper 70s and lower 80s for the eastside. A RED FLAG WARNING remains in effect for the Cascades, extreme western Jackson County, western Siskiyou County, Josephine and Curry Counties until 11 AM. Extremely low relative humidity and gusty winds to 25 MPH will cause critical fire growth potential. A SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY remains in effect for coastal waters until 11 PM Wednesday for northerly winds up to 25 knots and steep, wind-driven seas between 6-9 feet.
Tonight: Clear skies will allow overnight lows tonight to fall into the 30s and 40s with 50s along the coast. A FIRE WEATHER WATCH has been issued for the Southern Oregon Cascades and Siskiyous and for the Rogue Valley in Jackson County from 12 AM through 10 AM Wednesday.
Extended: We'll see widespread temperatures inland in the 80s and 90s by the Wednesday and Thursday with mainly sunny skies. Coastal tempreatures will gradually cool as the week goes on. Some high clouds are possible across the area by Thursday and Friday. We'll also see some smoke and haze towards some of our westside valleys by the end of the week and into the start of the weekend. By the end of the week, a storm system will be approaching our area, ending the stretch of unseasonably warm temperatures. Conditions look to cool back to near-average or even below-average into the weekend. The StormWatch 12 Weather Team is keeping a very close eye on this system that could bring parts of the area some showers by this weekend, mainly later Saturday. A more significant system is a possibility into early next week. We will keep you updated as forecast models come into better agreement with timing, intensity and location of any rain.
Fire Danger remains HIGH and if any fires do spark, they could spread quickly.
