Tonight: Tonight we will see mostly clear skies with lows in the mid-40s to low 50s with winds out of the West at 5 to 10 mph with light Fog.
Tomorrow: We will start off with mostly clear skies with morning lows in the mid-40s to low 50s. Skies will be clear in the afternoon with highs will be in the upper-60s to low 70s.
Late Week: The parent upper low looks to remain off the Pacific Northwest coast on Friday. This will bring additional cooling of about 8 to 12 degrees and stronger winds with east side gusts of 25 to 40 MPH possible. A wind advisory may be necessary for Friday, but have held off for now due to low confidence. It will also bring a chance of mainly coastal light showers. With the steady cooling trend, morning lows will be back to around normal on Friday morning while inland high temperatures will be near normal to several degrees below normal with valley high’s mainly in the lower 70s. A stronger front could arrive at the coast as early as Saturday evening though it is more likely to arrive on Sunday morning. The models have tracked this system further southward, with the GFS being the most progressive. This track will have an effect on the precipitation but there is still decent confidence in a substantial Sunday event with a light snowfall of up to 3 inches above the snow level of around 5500 to 6000 feet. The duration is not certain and the recent data has trended lower with the amounts, but a period of showers and flurries would normally be expected to follow in the cold post- frontal air mass on Sunday night...possibly into Monday morning. Overall rainfall amounts at the coast will range between a half an inch to an inch and a half with the highest amounts along the southern portion of the coast. As far as next week is concerned, the models continue to have no consistency in how to evolve the pattern. The most recent data shows a much weaker warm front will be slower and farther north than shown by the previous model blend. There is still a likelihood of at least light precipitation at the coast and in the Douglas County Monday night into Tuesday. The probability of showers diminishes as the week progresses.
