Colder Temperatures On The Way

Special Weather Statement

A cool airmass early this week will become colder Wednesday through Friday. Temperatures are expected to be 10 to 20 degrees below normal Wednesday through Friday.
This is likely to result in low temperatures below freezing even on the immediate coast Thursday and Friday mornings. The coldest morning is likely to be on Friday with lows in the 20s along the coast and in the single digits and teens for all areas east of the Coast Range. Below zero readings are possible over portions of the east side.
While it will remain mostly dry during this time period, a weak frontal system Wednesday night into Thursday could bring snow flurries or light snow to some areas just inland south of Cape
Blanco, Sexton Summit southward over the inland west side, and from the Cascades eastward. Subtropical moisture is expected to push in from the southwest this weekend resulting in a high potential for significant wind and precipitation across northern California and southern Oregon.

The incoming cold temperatures are unlikely to break records, but cold weather such as this will require extra clothing and other precautions. Pets, livestock, and tender vegetation may be adversely affected by this cold weather. Additionally, be prepared for the cold should your vehicle break down. Stay tuned to the National Weather Service through week for updates regarding this winter weather.
