Overnight snow levels will drop to 4,500′ which will bring the chance for some light snow showers along and east of the Cascades and while Crater Lake and Diamond Lake could pick up 1 to 2 inches, on the east side it will be closer to a dusting up to an inch in favored spots. The peak storm activity this weekend is well to our south in southern California though shower activity will continue this weekend a little closer to home. Activity here will mainly be light and isolated though the Mt Shasta area will see the most showers into Saturday. Things shift further north on Sunday as a cold front sets its track straight towards Oregon bringing rain Sunday afternoon to the coast and will stall before moving inland overnight Sunday into Monday. The heaviest rain with this system will be along and west of the Cascades while northern California will be on the southern fringe of the system and thus receive lighter rain totals.
Snow levels climb next week above pass level through the work week, so we will mostly see rain with snow only at the highest elevations including Mt Ashland and Mt Shasta. The first potent storm will push through late Sunday into Monday bringing rain and wind with is. Showers will lighten but continue Tuesday with the next round of decent rain moving in Wednesday into Thursday. Things dry out Friday into the weekend.
