The Wet Weather Continues!

Saturday’s front has stalled over our area, so clouds will hang around through the evening. Showers are possible along the coast into the morning, and also in the Rogue Valley. Snow showers are possible in the basin through the morning, and the higher elevations can expect to see snow overnight!

Snow levels will rise through Sunday with an approaching warm front, and the wet weather will continue. Rain for the Coast and the Rogue Valley, and snow for the Basin and the Mountains. We could see 3-5″ in the mountains tomorrow afternoon,with locally higher amounts, and 2-3″ in the Basin. The main concern is for Sunday evening. This is when the heaviest snow is expected, as the next cold front pushes inland for Monday morning. Some places of the Cascades could see over a foot or more Sunday through Monday. Roadways are already slick, with reports of ice and snow just from Saturday’s front. Conditions will fastly deteriorate into Sunday evening. High winds will begin along the coast and move further east throughout the afternoon. The NWS has issued High Wind Warnings along the coast, for portions of Lake county, and also for portions of Siskiyou County through Monday morning. We also have Winter Weather Advisories in place for portions Siskiyou County and Klamath Counties with the moderate to heavy snowfall expected. This will most certainly impact driving conditions. With high winds we will have blowing snow and drifting snow, so reduced visibilities are expected and it is advisedĀ  that anyone traveling be extremely cautious-bring chains, and an emergency travel kit!
