CHIEF METEOROLOGIST JUSTIN STAPLETON’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Today was the coolest day we’ve seen since the 21st of this month as highs only got into the low 60s today. Tonight, most of the cloud cover has cleared and we’re about to see another round of patchy frost in the outlying areas. Frost Advisories are up for parts of Central Douglas county through 7am. While the coast will sit in the low 40s, inland areas will dip well into the mid 30s by sunrise.
Tomorrow will stay mild with fog in the inland valleys for a few hours. But most of the morning cloud cover will break up by early afternoon, leaving a mostly sunny afternoon with highs back in the low 60s. The coast will also see sunny skies by the afternoon with winds turning more northerly, so expect a breezy couple of hours throughout the day.
By Wednesday, high pressure again begins to trek north into the Nothern Pacific and eventually moving over the Northwest by the end of the week. That will mean another round of early summer-like weather for us starting Wednesday through most of the weekend. Highs will climb into the low 70s midweek, upper 70s to near 80 by Friday and should hold sunny and very warm through the weekend. Spots in the Umpqua may again climb into the mid 80s this weekend!
A cut-off low meanders into California by next week but as of now, looks to be too far south to really impact our weather. But computer models don’t handle those conditions very well, so I’ll be watching to see where it sets up once we get later in the week. Cool weather fans should enjoy Tuesday because it’ll feel like July by Friday!
Have a great Tuesday!
