Today: After a warm and sticky start this morning, we'll see very warm temperatures and dry conditions for the afternoon. Expect a mix of sun and clouds across the region, hazy sunshine near Medford, with high temperatures in the middle to upper 80s in our westside valleys with 60s to near 70 degrees along the Oregon coast and upper 70s to around 80 degrees in the Klamath Basin. Winds will be a bit breezy along the coast with gusts up to 20 MPH out of the north.
Tonight: Skies will stay partly cloudy to mostly cloudy overnight with temperatures staying mild to warm. Lows will only drop into the mid to upper 50s west of the Cascades, into the mid 40s to lower 50s in the Klamath Basin, and into the low to mid 50s along the coast.
Extended: Sunshine and summer-like heat will move in to end the workweek. Highs will push 90 degrees in our westside valleys with warmer weather across the rest of the region. Temperatures around the region will peak on Thursday and Friday with highs into the middle 90s for our westside valleys and Northern California and highs into the upper 80s and low 90s east of the Cascades. Apart from a stray shower or thunderstorm Thursday and Friday afternoon and evening in higher elevations, we should remain hot and dry.
We'll see a big change in our weather this weekend. We are closely following a storm system that will likely bring rain and even some thunderstorms to our region on Saturday. Some of the rain could be heavy at times along and west of the Cascades. More showers and thunderstorms are possible Sunday and into Monday. With this more active weather pattern, temperatures will fall back into the 70s around the region.
