Updated 800am PDT Wednesday 06 July 2022...An upper level trough will remain over the eastern Pacific Ocean and into the Pacific Northwest through the week. This will result in light winds and low seas. Marine stratus will be persistent through the week and fog is expected at times. A thermal trough is expected to return to the southern coast this upcoming weekend with increased north winds, especially south of Cape Blanco. Small Craft Advisory conditions may begin Saturday night or early Sunday morning. Then, gales are possible later Sunday into Monday. -Keene/DW

It is a quiet morning today, with some light shower activity along and west of the Cascades, but little other significant features to speak of. A similar pattern is expected today as yesterday, with a showery pattern, although showers are forecast to decrease in coverage, and breezy afternoon winds in the Shasta Valley and across the East Side. Mild temperatures will persist today with highs in the 70s to low 80s across inland valleys.

Thursday and Friday, expect slightly warmer and mainly dry weather. The ECMWF (European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts) and GFS models/ensembles favor a persistent trough centered along the PacNW coast or just offshore. With this pattern, expect breezy to gusty southwest to west winds, especially for areas east of the Cascades. On Friday, most the ensembles favor dry weather. However, some ensemble members show an upper level shortwave moving into the area with a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms over central and eastern portions of the area. Will need to monitor this portion of the forecast and update if models trend towards the wetter solutions.

Heading into the weekend, models and ensembles show a trend towards warming temperatures as the upper trough shifts eastward and an upper ridge builds into the area. Some guidance suggests that troughing, or at least some weak cyclonic flow, is possible early next week.
