Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
A few stragler showers trying to move through the mountains tonight otherwise, clouds are breaking up across the region. That’s just about the end of the rain/snow chances for the foreseeable future, with one exception Monday. Colder air will start to move in midweek, dropping highs back into the 30s and lows well into the mid and lower 20s.
Both Saturday and Sunday will be mostly cloudy to start with some sun breaks by the afternoon and highs holding in the mid 40s. Another storm will move through the southern coast into Northern California Saturday night and Sunday. The only chances for rain in our area will be around southern Douglas Co. and maybe the south coast, Coos Bay/North Bend, down to Gold Beach overnight into early Sunday.
Next week sees the return of some polar continential air into the Northwest. What that means is very cold, dry Arctic Canadian air will be spilling southward starting midweek. Highs will tumble from the mid 40s early in the week, to upper and likely mid 30s Thursday and Friday. In addition, snow lines will stay low on Monday with a small distubance bringing some light snow as low as 700-1000 feet. Overnight lows will get very chilly, falling into the mid 20s!
Have a great weekend!
