Memorial Day weekend forecast

The upper level low that was forecasted to develop to our north has done so a little further south than the models suggested so we have a stronger onshore flow and thus some thick marine clouds that have pushed in giving us some drizzle this morning. This has also increased our chances of seeing a shower today. The onshore flow will weaken tonight and so the clouds should burn off Saturday morning and Sunday should be warmer and dry. The extended forecast for next week, a large low pressure system develops over Alaska Monday which will have areas of disturbed weather that rotate around the low, and over our area, so we can expect off and on showers for most of next week. Temperatures for the period, highs around 60 and lows around 50.

Thursday's Weather (Weekend looks good!)

Okay…I’m trying to win my fans/friends back with better weather over the holiday weekend! Until then we have a broad upper low pressure system off the south Oregon Coast which has areas of showers rotation around the low and over the region. The greatest threat for shower activity is over in the valley but there is still a chance that one or two could make it over into our area today. The models now show another upper level low developing to our northwest tomorrow giving us an onshore flow that could bring in more clouds and a slight chance of rain, mainly to the north. Now to win back my friends, Saturday AND Sunday look to be dryer and warmer. A weak ridge builds in over the area to give us mostly sunny days and cool nights. Another system approaches late Sunday or early Monday and after that, pick your favorite model as each shows something different. For now anyway, they all agree that the end of next week could be nasty.

Happy Holidays! Midweek Forecast

Well, the cold front made it past us before stalling but now we have disturbances riding along the front that will cause precipitation to continue, off and on, over the area for much of today and tomorrow. Friday an upper level low that is contributing to the unsettled weather will move on to the east but we could still see a shower or two develop. The models have all finally come into agreement for the holiday weekend. A ridge of high pressure will build in so dryer weather with mostly sunny days for Saturday and Sunday. It does look like the clouds roll back in Sunday night and more rain is possible Monday ahead of a weak front moving inland on Tuesday.

Monday's Weather, May 24th, 2010

A weak warm front is bringing light rain to the area this morning and the associated weak cold front will bring rain tonight into tomorrow morning then another system will continue the light rain my midday Tuesday into the evening. Once these have passed an upper level low develops and causes showers to stay in the forecast through Thursday. The models do show the low moving on Friday so maybe some better weather for the Memorial Day Holiday weekend!

More Weather finally, May 7th, 2010

Okay, so I'm lazy...I'll try harder...maybe...

The spring like conditions we had this winter have been replaced with winter like condition this spring! We can expect overnight lows to be in the 30s again tonight. Until then we will have a sunny day with only some high clouds moving across the area. Tomorrow more clouds as an upper level feature moves across then on Sunday a system moves through California and we will see some clouds from that system as well as another system to do the same on Monday though this one may give us a shower or two into early Tuesday. By Wednesday, partly cloudy and dry but…it’s only temporary as another front is expected to affect the area on Thursday.
