Winds are switching to more onshore, compared to the offshore winds we saw last week, bringing more marine clouds and morning fog. Monday morning saw a dense fog advisory through noon due to fog at the coast and in the inland valleys. It is possible to see more advisory-level fog on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.
Additionally, temperature inversions are expected in the valleys, especially overnight and during the morning. This leads to stagnant air and poor air quality. An air stagnation advisory is in place for the Willamette Valley and Umpqua Basin through Wednesday. The good news is during the afternoon hours more mixing is expected, improving air quality. Here is look at air quality as of 9 a.m. Monday.
There is a front moving into the Pacific Northwest this weekend. Right now, it looks like the ridge will keep most if not all of the moist well to our north, but we will like see increased cloud cover on Friday and Saturday.
