A Wet Weekend On Tap

video preview image

A trough sitting off shore will usher in several waves of energy over the next several days with the main system of the front moving through today bringing the heaviest rain and winds. A chance for isolated areas mainly in the Klamath Basin to see freezing rain through the morning, any freezing rain will be light and brief but may cause slick roads at times.  Expect the heaviest rain to fall at the coast with moderate rain inland and snow levels remaining above pass level today, so snow will not impact travel however strong winds may especially for high profile vehicles. The strongest winds will be at the coast and ridges as well as the Summer Lake area with possible gust to 30 mph. Rain and wind will start to lighten tonight but will continue through tomorrow and into early Sunday. Snow levels will drop tonight and through the weekend after each round of storms and will reach down to 2,000 feet on Sunday morning. Any snow falling to low levels on Sunday morning will be light with little to no accumulation.

Sunday will mainly be a break from the rain and snow before the next round moves in Monday bringing another round of rain and snow before high pressure builds in again bringing valley fog back to the area. Air quality will be improving with each round of storms moving through.

    Welcome, Megan. I am one of your spotters. We live 4 miles north of Klamath Falls on Paradise Hill at an elevation of 4800′. We can see from Lava Beds National Monument and Medicine Lake in northern CA all the way around to Mt. Scott on Crater Lake. I have a nice weather station but the wind gauge is not currently working. Best wishes on a great career for you.
