METEOROLOGIST MARISA WOLOSZYN’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Skies will turn partly cloudy Tuesday night with temperatures falling into into the low 40s and upper 30s. The partial clearing and recent rainfall will promote the development of fog Wednesday morning. Skies will transition to mostly sunny by the afternoon with high temps in the upper 50s and low 60s.
Clouds will increase Thursday ahead of the next storm. This storm won’t have much moisture with it, but we’ll still see showers in the afternoon and evening Thursday. Snow is expected above 4,500 feet. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 50s.
Another weak wave will move in Friday afternoon bring more showers across the area and snow above 4,000 feet. A stronger storm moves in this weekend causing more widespread showers. The wettest day will be Saturday, with isolated showers lingering into Sunday. The freezing level will rise from 4,500 feet Saturday to 6,500 feet Sunday.
High pressure begins to build Monday meaning more sunshine and warmer temperatures, possible pushing 70 degrees in the Umpqua Basin. This is definitely possible as long as the forecast holds steady.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
