CHIEF METEOROLOGIST JUSTIN STAPLETON’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Overnight showers will start to slowly wind down, and with some breaks in the clouds, I’m expecting the fog to settle in for the valley early Tuesday morning. Lows also will fall down into the low 30s making a chilly (but drier) AM commute for Tuesday.
Speaking of, Tuesday will stay dry overall, with some clouds breaks by the afternoon. Both Wednesday and Thursday carry a chance for some scattered showers as a couple of weak systems move over top of a developing ridge of high pressure offshore. But neither of those will be very strong, so no more than isolated chances for showers both days, with Thursday looking to be the day with better coverage of showers in the afternoon. Highs will hold in the upper 40s and low 50s both days.
Albeit from some morning fog in the valleys, we should see a nice, sunny end to the work week and start to the weekend. A ridge of high pressure will push the clouds and rain away and bring in some warmer air. Highs will also shoot back up into the upper 50s, with some areas in the Umpqua possibly seeing low 60s!
Have a great Tuesday!
