CHIEF METEOROLOGIST JUSTIN STAPLETON’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Showers and clouds will slowly break up overnight and after a chilly day, I’m expecting lows to fall into the low 30s and likely below freezing in outlying areas for the morning. A Frost Advisory has been posted for the Umpqua Basin down through the Rogue Valley through 8am.
Tuesday starts a slow warm up and drying out period as a high pressure ridge pushes the cold, unstable air out of the region. Highs will be a bit warmer tomorrow back into the mid 50s and besides some light occasional snow showers above 2500 feet, the valleys and coast should see some partial sunshine by the afternoon. Wednesday and Thursday will be warmer still, in the 60s and back to partly cloudy skies.
Friday sees a small storm ride over the ridge bringing a slight chance for some isolated showers areawide with some trying to hang on into Saturday. I’m not totally convinced they will so we’ll watch that trend as we get into the week. Highs will stay near average though, in the low 60s.
Have a great Tuesday!
