Discussion
Pretty quiet and typical july like weather will continue into the
start of the weekend. The thermal trough will persist into
Saturday bringing warmer temperatures to the southern oregon
coastline. Eventually, the thermal trough will move inland and
the inland valleys will feel the heat Sunday and Monday with high
temperatures in the mid 90's. This is only 3 to 5 degrees warmer
than our climatological normals for this time of year.

Heading into Sunday, a low will approach from the west and some
upper level energy will head into southern oregon later on in the
evening. Right now, we believe that thunderstorm chances are the
best east of the cascades in lake county. Given how dry the
boundary layer will be and how little moisture will be available
within the cloud layer, thunderstorms will probably be on the
drier side. We believe the threat within lake county will be
isolated if storms are able to get going.

We'll have to continue to monitor the forecast Monday and Tuesday
for thunderstorm potential. The low remains off the coast of
washington and upper level disturbances keep moving through Monday
and Tuesday. Latest model guidance suggests most of the storm
activity will stay to our east, but its not out of the question
that a storm is able to get going east of the cascades again
Monday or Tuesday. Right now the chances are so low it's not
within the forecast, but it's worth a mention in this product.

The low will move onshore Wednesday and relatively cooler air will
follow in the low's wake. Temperatures will trend about 5 to 7
degrees cooler with moist onshore flow on Wednesday. This change
will be brief as high pressure will build westward and northward
into the pacific northwest. As a result, temperatures will
probably be warmer than average towards the end of next week into
next weekend and the end of july.

Aviation For the 19 18z tafs... VFR will prevail for the
remainder of this afternoon into this evening. Look for breezy
winds near the terminals late in the afternoon as up valley winds
kick in. Spotty MVFR will probably build later tonight near oth and
rgb.

evening. Conditions hazardous to small craft will continue across
all of the waters with more hazardous warning level conditions this
afternoon and evening for much of the area between 2 and 60 nm from

Fire weather Updated 200 pm pdt Friday 19 july 2019... North to
northeast winds will develop tonight and persist through Monday,
bringing moderate rh recoveries to the west side ridges. Inland
temperatures will warm to five to ten degrees above normal values
Sunday and humidities will drop. There will be a slight chance of
thunderstorms over lake and modoc counties Sunday afternoon and
evening, and lightning from any storms that do form will be dry.

Inland temperatures will cool down to 0-5 degrees above normal
values Tuesday and remain there through Thursday. It may heat up
again Friday into next weekend.
