Today: We'll see mostly cloudy skies across our region through the day ahead of an approaching storm system. We'll stay dry and mild for your Thursday with highs in the 60s for inland areas and 50s along the Oregon coast.
An AIR STAGNATION ADVISORY remains in effect for our westside and eastside valleys in Southern Oregon until 4 PM today. A very stable air mass has taken hold of our region leading to a period of very little mixing of the atmosphere. During the duration of this advisory, there may be periods of poor air quality.
A BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT remains in effect for the Oregon coast until 10 PM tonight. Highs than usual wave run-ups and an elevated risk for sneaker waves are expected. Use extreme caution on the beaches.
Tonight: A few very light showers are possible as early as late this evening along the Oregon coast, but we'll likely stay dry until our overnight hours. Expect light rain showers to move in along the coast and for a few areas west of the Cascades by tomorrow morning, likely creating wet road surfaces for Friday's morning commute. Low temperatures tonight won't be as chilly, bottoming out in the upper 30s to lower 40s in our westside valleys and low to mid 30s for areas east of the Cascades.
Extended: We're closely tracking a storm system Friday that will likely bring rain showers to the coast and to parts of the Oregon Cascades. We'll even have the opportunity for a few light showers in our westside valleys, namely into Josephine County. There's a slight chance some showers could make their way into Siskiyou County by Friday morning. Areas east of the Cascades will more than likely stay dry with just mostly cloudy skies. Rainfall amounts near the coast and up in the Cascades near Crater Lake could exceed 1/4" but most areas that do see rain will see less than 1/10". You can expect winds to pick up a bit across our region with cooler temperatures too. On
Saturday will likely start off with low clouds and fog along the coast and throughout our inland valleys. Skies will clear into the afternoon. Temperatures will warm on Sunday with mostly sunny skies. A more potent storm looks to move into the region later Monday. It looks to be our best chance at widespread rainfall for our area and will likely bring much cooler temperatures to our region next week. We'll keep you updated through the week.
