StormWatch 12 Forecast

January 15th and 16th Weekend Forecast

Today: Our stretch of rather uneventful weather will continue right into the new work week. This morning will feature some fog along the coast, and in our inland valleys (especially in northern portions of the Rogue Valley). Along the coast the fog should clear out by the late morning, but localized areas of fog in our valleys might be more stubborn. Elsewhere, today should be another very pleasant day. Skies will start off mostly sunny, but clouds will build in throughout the day ahead of a very weak system which will swing through on Tuesday. And if you’re curious about today’s temperatures, you’ve already guessed it! More mild highs will be in store today. It’ll warm up into the low to mid-50s on the westside, with mid to upper-40s on the eastside.

An AIR STAGNATION ADVISORY has been issued by the Oregon DEQ and Siskiyou County:

Where: Westside and eastside valleys in Southern Oregon and Northern California

When: Until 10 AM Tuesday

What: Poor mixing and a strong inversion leading to reduced air quality at times.

Tonight: Our weather will stay calm this evening and overnight. Some short-range models are hinting at a sprinkle or flurry in the Cascades overnight, so we aren’t ruling that out completely. Otherwise, fog will likely return to familiar territory: along the coast and in the Rogue Valley (especially towards Grants Pass). Overnight lows will drop into the 40s along the coast, and into the mid-30s in the Rogue Valley. Upper-20s will be in store for Siskiyou County and the Cascades, while low-20s will be in the cards for the Basin.

Extended: The aforementioned weak storm system will only provide a few showers to the coast tomorrow, but even that chance looks pretty minimal. Beyond that, some models have some disagreements about some very slight rain chances on Wednesday and Thursday for the coast and Cascades. Even if this does come to fruition, potential rainfall amounts look adjacent to nothing. Overall, mild and dry conditions will continue to prevail for the foreseeable future.
