Temperatures will continue cooling today and highs will top out in the 60’s region-wide. An area of low pressure just to our north will bring showers into the Coast throughout the morning and a small chance for a thunderstorm or two. Later in the day, showers will begin developing across the West Side and along the Cascades. An isolated thunderstorm cannot be ruled out for these areas, however mainly just showers are anticipated. The East Side & Siskiyou County will stay dry today.

Thursday will bring a relatively dry and quiet day everywhere as skies clear a bit and drier air filters in. By Friday, another area of low pressure will track south and east into the region. This will bring in not only showers, but thunderstorms to portions of Southern Oregon & Northern California.

The greatest threat for thunderstorms will be over Siskiyou County, the Cascades & the Klamath Basin. However, showers will likely develop over the West Side and with the amount of instability present, thunderstorms are in the forecast for both Friday and Saturday here as well.

On Friday, the most activity will be over Siskiyou County, the West Side & the Cascades. On Saturday this will shift further east and the greatest threat will be over the Cascades, the Basin & Siskiyou County. Showers and storms are likely again into Sunday over the Basin & Northern California. Throughout this time period, expect partly to mostly cloudy skies.
