Today was very similar to yesterday with temperatures a few degrees cooler in some locations. We are in a very repetitive weather pattern, and this evening will be similar to last evening. Temperatures will drop into the low 20′s and upper teens in the Rogue Valley, and single digits are expected in and around Klamath Falls once again. Along the Coast and freeze warning and frost advisory has been issued until 9AM tomorrow since temperatures will drop into the mid to low 30′s. By sunset tomorrow any fog that develops along the Coast or in the Valley’s should begin to burn off, allowing for temperatures to climb to highs close to this afternoon’s. Also, air quality levels are still sensitive and unhealthy in both Klamath Falls and Lakeview and will remain this way until this air mass exits the Pacific Northwest. Levels in Medford are between moderate and sensitive, changing depending on the time of day.
Tuesday should start off mostly sunny for the Rogue Valley, but increasing clouds are expected for all areas. By late afternoon the Coast should see some showers strolling in, while any precipitation that falls eastward won’t be until early morning. There is a small chance that the precipitation falls early enough for it to fall as snow by the time it arrives in the Valley, considering the cold overnight lows we have been seeing the past week. If this were to happen it would be little to no accumulation, however roads will be impacted. Still the system is roughly 48 hours out so this remains uncertain at the time and something to just consider. Snow showers will fall in the Basin for the day Wednesday. By Thursday most of the region is dry under mostly cloudy skies. The cloudy skies will linger into Friday ahead of our next storm system, which will bring through a rather strong cold front and some cooler temperatures Saturday night and Sunday. Again we could see a chance for snow with this system as well, but the fact that it is a week out from now could still allow for many changes to the forecast!
