Today: Brighter and warmer conditions will be experienced today with breezy winds throughout much of the region. The coast will see gusty offshore winds this afternoon leading to Chetco Effect conditions and temperatures climbing into the upper 80s to potentially 90 degrees. The rest of the region will see plenty of sunshine and gusty winds too, with temperatures much warmer than were observed on Saturday. Highs today will climb into the low to mid 80s in our westside valleys and Northern California with low to mid 70s east of the Cascades. Wind gusts today out of the north and northeast could reach 25 MPH for much of Southern Oregon and Northern California.
A HEAT ADVISORY has been issued for Curry and Josephine County from 12 PM Sunday - 12 PM Tuesday. During this time, high temperatures will climb into the upper 80s to upper 90s and with overnight low temperatures only falling into the 60s. Temperatures this hot can lead to heat related illness. Please use caution and stay hydrated in these areas from Sunday through Tuesday.
Tonight: Mostly clear skies are going to be observed around the region tonight with chilly overnight low temperatures. Overnight lows tonight will be similar to last night falling into the upper 40s to low 50s for areas west of the Cascades with low to mid 30s east of the Cascades. The continuing Chetco Effect will keep the coast warm tonight, with lows only expected to fall into the 60s. Winds are expected to increase around much of the region through the overnight hours with continued strong winds through Monday. Wind gusts out of the east overnight tonight and through Monday could reach 30 MPH with 40 MPH gusts possible in higher elevations. Strong winds along with very dry conditions will create critical fire concerns.
A RED FLAG WARNING has been issued for westside valleys of Southern Oregon, the Cascades, Siskiyous, and western Siskiyou County from 12 AM - 8 PM Monday and for central and eastern Siskiyou County from 10 AM - 8 PM Monday. During this time, easterly winds of 10-20 MPH are expected with gusts up to 40 MPH possible. High winds combined with very low humidity will create critical fire danger. New and existing fires could spread quickly in these conditions. Please practice fire safety.
Extended: Sunny and hot conditions will persist for a majority of next week. Temperatures are expected to remain in the mid to upper 90s for the entire workweek in our westside valleys with temperatures climbing into the mid to upper 80s east of the Cascades. The coast will continue to experience temperatures approaching 90° through Monday, before backing down into the 80s and even 70s for the middle to later stages of the week.
A BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT has been issued for coastal Curry County from 11 AM Monday - 2 AM Tuesday. During this time there is an increased risk of sneaker waves with higher than usual wave run ups possible. Please exercise extreme caution if you find yourself near the ocean at any point on Monday.
The strong ridge over the region will break down by next weekend. This will cause temperatures to fall back into the 80s for our westside valleys, upper 70s to low 80s east of the Cascades, with mid to upper 60s on the coast.
