CHIEF METEOROLOGIST JUSTIN STAPLETON’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
A weak cold front is moving across the state tonight and early Wednesday. While it won’t bring more than a slight chance for some isolated showers in the mountains and sprinkles inland, clouds will hold through most of the night so lows will also stay a tad warmer than yesterday, in the mid to low 30s.
Most of Wednesday will stay cloudy but dry, with highs back into the low 50s. A second and stronger storm moves in late Wednesday and will keep scattered showers around for most of Thursday. Light accumulations of rain and snow above 4000 feet.
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! Saturday will also be mild but clouds return by the afternoon and the next rain maker moves in by dinnertime overnight into Sunday for more showers to end the first weekend of March.
Have a great Wednesday!
