Tonight: Clear skies will continue tonight with winds and very low humidity still an issue near the coast. In southwestern Oregon and for western Siskiyou Co., a RED FLAG WARNING continues until 11 AM Tuesday . Gusty northeasterly winds up to 35 mph and low humidity will create critical fire weather conditions. A GALE WARNING has been issued for coastal waters from until 5 AM Tuesday for northerly gales up to 35 knots and steep, wind-driven seas between 10-13 feet. Lows tonight will fall into the 30s and 40s with 50s along the coast.
Tomorrow: More sunshine and even hotter temperatures expected across our area. Winds will relax a bit into the afternoon towards the coast. The Chetco Effect will still get the Brookings area and the coast into the 70s and 80s with smoky and hazy skies. Farther inland, highs will climb into the upper 80s to around 90° in our westside valleys. In the Basin, temperatures will rebound into the upper 70s to near 80°.
Extended: The fire danger threat will shift a bit east for late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Much of Jackson Co. and parts of Siskiyou, Josephine, and Klamath Co. are under a FIRE WEATHER WATCH for this time frame. Breezy northeast and east winds along with very low humidity will likely create critical fire weather conditions.
We'll see widespread temperatures inland in the 80s and 90s by the Wednesday and Thursday with mainly sunny skies. Coastal tempreatures will gradually cool as the week goes on. Some high clouds are possible across the area by Thursday and Friday. We'll also see some smoke and haze towards some of our westside valleys by the end of the week and into the start of the weekend. By the end of the week, a storm system will be approaching our area, ending the stretch of unseasonably warm temperatures. Conditions look to cool back to near-average or even below-average into the weekend. The StormWatch 12 Weather Team is keeping a very close eye on this system that could bring parts of the area some showers by this weekend, mainly later Saturday. A more significant system is a possibility into early next week. We will keep you updated as forecast models come into better agreement with timing, intensity and location of any rain.
Fire Danger remains HIGH and if any fires do spark, they could spread quickly.
