Rain on Halloween

Mostly cloudy conditions will continue through the weekend. A stronger series of fronts arrive just in time to provide widely scattered rain showers for Halloween. Temperatures will cool a bit by the later part of the week but stay above freezing.

Warmer Weekend Weather

A weak warm front will bring scattered showers to our area this weekend; otherwise we’ll see mostly cloudy conditions. Snow levels will remain near ten-thousand feet. A stronger front brings heavier rain to region early next week.

Clearer Weather Returns

Clouds will thin and our snow and rain will diminish by Thursday. Partly clear skies will give us warmer temperatures but still a few degrees below average for this time of year. Clouds return early next week with a chance for new showers.

More rain and snow

An area of low pressure over the Pacific will continue to pull moisture and cool air inland with snow at mountain locations and rain the valleys overnight. A few sunny breaks return on Thursday and Friday with slightly warmer temperatures.

Snow showers will continue over the mountains through Tuesday morning with rain in the valleys. A developing front will bring a repeat of this weather pattern on Wednesday. Clearer skies arrive Thursday with some slightly warmer temperatures.

A front moves through northern California early Monday morning with snow levels falling to four-thousand feet. Total accumulation will range to four inches or more at the higher elevations. Rainfall will be widespread in the valleys.

A Winter Weather Advisory

A winter weather advisory goes into effect for the higher elevations of Siskiyou county late Sunday night. This storm will produce the first significant mountain snow of the season with four inches or more above 45-hundred feet.

Lower Snow Levels

A series of weather systems will move through the area into the middle of next week. These storms will lower snow levels to less than 7,500 feet by Saturday morning and then to 4,000 feet by early next week. Scattered showers this weekend.

An area of low pressure is coming ashore with increasing clouds but most of the precipitation staying north of us.  Another front next week will likely bring a few showers and lower freezing levels. Daytime temperatures will be cooler.
