Tonight: Tonight we will see mostly cloudy skies with lows in the upper 40s to low 50s with breezy winds out of the South at 10 to 20 mph with 40% chance of light showers.
Tomorrow: We will start off with mostly cloudy skies with morning lows in the upper 40s to low 50s. we will see skies turn partly cloudy around lunch time as the storm system pulls away but it won’t last long as a warm front will bring clouds and rain back for the evening, highs will be in the upper 50s to low 60s.
Work Week: The upper level low responsible for the wind and rain today will remain offshore, drifting slowly north tonight through Tuesday. A second trough will then swing under this one from the south, and slide north along the coast Tuesday night and Wednesday. This will bring another round of wind and rain to the area Wednesday morning. Although pressure gradients with this system are forecast to be lower and the surface low is not expected to deepen as it slides through, winds may still reach advisory levels in the Shasta Valley and over the East Side. Confidence is low, but further model runs this evening and tonight should tilt the scales in one way or the other. Precipitation is another matter. With models showing 6 to 12 hour differences in the timing of the front, and also depicting the chance that the front could stall along the coast for a brief time, there is a wide range of precipitation amounts that could result. have opted towards the slower solutions, due to the weaker dynamics and flows associated with the system, and brought the main band of precipitation onshore along the southern Oregon coast Wednesday afternoon, then gradually sliding it east through the evening and into Wednesday night. Rainfall amounts will be heaviest wherever this band stalls, with heaviest amounts along southern slopes and east to west trending ridgelines. West Side valleys will most likely be sheltered, and should only receive light amounts, while the bulk of the moisture inflow never really makes it east of the Cascades. Showers are then forecast to continue through Thursday as onshore flow continues, conditions should dry out a bit Thursday night as weak upper level ridging nudges into the region, but this break will be brief as another system approaches from the south, continuing the unsettled and wet pattern into the long term.
