Today: A storm system will impact the region today, mainly after 12 PM. We'll likely see scattered showers along the coast and in the coastal mountains in Curry & Josephine Counties as we move into the afternoon. Rainfall amounts could total between 1/10" to 1/4", increasing the further westward. For the Rogue Valley and Medford, we'll be lucky to see a few sprinkles. East of the Cascades will stay dry. Afternoon high temperatures will be 10 degrees cooler than Monday with highs in the 60s with 50s along the coast and in our higher elevations. Gusty winds are expected with this front pushing through the region up to 35 MPH at times.
Tonight: Rain will begin to taper off this evening, giving way to mostly cloudy skies and overnight lows into the 30s and 40s. Winds will remain out of the south up to 10 MPH.
Extended: Look for cooler temperatures with a mix of sun and clouds on Wednesday. Another system is set to the Pacific Northwest Thursday into Friday. Most of the energy and rainfall will stay to our north, but it's possible we could see see a few showers for the coast and the Cascades later Thursday evening. We'll see warming temperatures late in the week and into the weekend, with Saturday looking very warm. Highs could potentially push 80 degrees for portions of the westside.
By Sunday, a more potent system could impact our area, bringing the best chance at widespread rain for the region. We're closely tracking any changes to the forecast models and will updated the extended forecast accordingly. Expect cooler days behind Sunday's system to start next week.
Fire Danger remains MODERATE for southwest Oregon.
