WEATHER SUMMARY AND FORECAST DETAILS
Brought to you by:
FOR 10/18/2018 -
When last we left this space, it looked like the warm, dry weather would continue through all of the remainder of October. The overall picture still looks right now as that will be the case. But, next week, it is really clear now we are going to see a break out of the very classic Indian Summer conditions we have been seen. The Omega Block that has been giving us the very delightful weather is going to be breaking down just enough to allow a trough to come into the area next week. Before that arrives, we are going to see more of what we have been. Sunny days with temps swinging as high as 50 degrees between the lows and the highs. That can happen here in our part of the world in both the fall and spring. One thing being watched very carefully is the potential for windy conditions to arrive late tomorrow going into Saturday. While we are not expecting to see anything like what developed last weekend....with the Klondike Fire still a major concern, and fire season still on across our area.....ANY wind right now is going to be cause for concern. We are expecting to see a very sunny and warm weekend. But, next week is when we finally see relief coming to us.
A trough is going to come through the Northwest from roughly late Monday night through Thursday. We will see a series of disturbances come through with the strongest to arrive on Wednesday and Thursday. The one for Wednesday and Thursday is strating to show signs of being an Atmospheric River event. It is going to be a weaker one it appears as these things go. But, it would be the most significant widespread rain we have seen since last spring. And this offers us great hope. The confidence that this happens is actually pretty high for as far out as we are. And all the models do point this direction. Snow levels will be remaining high with this event. At least above 7500 feet. But, this could bring a good snowfall to the highest elevations of our area like The Crater Lake Rim, Mt. McLoughlin, Mt. Shasta, and other high elevation peaks. I truly wish i could say that we will get into a prolonged period of at least wet conditions. But, that will not be the case. It looks like the Omega Block redevelops over us the weekend of the 27 and 28th. As it looks right now, Halloween will be sunny and warmer than average during the day, and clear that night.
