Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
Happy Veterans Day! We’re stuck in the fog on this Monday morning. The National Weather Service issued a Dense Fog Advisory for the southern Willamette Valley, the Umpqua Basin and for much of southern Oregon because the visibility in these locations are generally less than a quarter of a mile. This advisory will likely expire by 11 a.m.
The fog should start to break up this afternoon revealing at least a few sun breaks. Highs will stay in the mid 50s in the valley, but will easily climb to the low 60s in areas that break through the fog. This includes the coast, parts of central Oregon and parts of the Umpqua Basin.
The dry spell comes to an end in less than 24 hours. A cold front is headed our way for Tuesday. This will keep us mostly cloudy and keep showers going from just before sunrise through the afternoon. Highs will stay in the mid 50s.
Wednesday and Thursday we’ll be in between storms. This will leave us dry, partly sunny and highs will stay in the mid 50s.
The next storm hits Friday afternoon. Scattered showers are likely through Saturday.
Have a great start to the week!
