Tonight: Smoky and mostly clear tonight with lows in the 40s and 50s. Winds will diminish and air quality will be poor.
Tomorrow: Dry and smoky for your Saturday, especially, in our westside valleys. Once again, air quality will be poor so be sure to limit your time outdoors. The Air Quality Alert for Southern Oregon will continue through the weekend. Highs Saturday and Sunday will climb into the 90s and lower 90s for much of the area. We'll see 70s and 60s along the coast.
Extended: Concern is growing for thunderstorms on Sunday. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will likely develop Sunday afternoon for the Basin, along the Cascade and Siskiyou Mountains, and into Northern California. An isolated storm or two could slip into parts of the Rogue Valley Sunday afternoon. Because of the lightning threat and such dry conditions, a FIRE WEATHER WATCH has been posted for these areas Sunday afternoon through Sunday evening.
Sunday will also be warmer. Temperatures continue to heat up into next week. We'll also keep storm chances for the Basin, Cascades, and Northern California for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. However, chances and coverage look less than Sunday.
Later next week temperatures look to back off.
Fire Danger remains HIGH and if any fires do spark, they could spread quickly.
