Following up on a few morning showers yesterday, today's forecast brings spotty sprinkles to the early commute. Most will be under overcast skies through the rest of this morning, but we can expect at least a little short-lived sunshine heading into the afternoon. It may not be much, but that should be just enough to help afternoon highs creep their way back into the upper 70s.
Tomorrow will start off on the same foot, but Wednesday will likely see a bit more in the way of organized rain chances. By Wednesday evening, our next weathermaker will swing down towards southwest Oregon and provide one final opportunity for wet weather in our forecast. The incoming warm front will lead to rainfall Wednesday evening through Thursday morning with the best chance for wet weather likely coming along the Coast. We're still not talking about any major rain totals, but instead are expecting little more than a few passing showers in the days to come.
Once we clear out our rain chances by the end of the work week and begin to see some breaks in the cloud cover, we can expect some clearer, drier, and warmer weather into this weekend. Saturday and Sunday are expected to see plenty of sunshine and bring some warmer afternoon highs with numbers that start to flirt with the 90s down in the Umpqua Valley.
