Meteorologist Marisa Woloszyn’s Forecast Discussion:

A chilly start Tuesday with lows in the mid 30s along the coast, near 30 degrees in the Rogue Valley and in the teens in the mountains, the Klamath Basin and Northern California. Mostly sunny skies helped get temperatures back near average in the afternoon.

Tuesday night will be chilly again with temperatures falling in the mid 30s along the coast, upper 20s in the Rogue Valley and into the teens for the mountains, the Klamath Basin and Northern California. A FREEZE WARNING is in effect for the coast from 1-8 a.m. on Wednesday.

Wednesday will be a lot like Tuesday, but expect a few more clouds along the coast and in Northern California as a weak wave approaches. High temps will be in the upper 40s along the coast, in the Rogue Valley, and Northern California, but only in the mid 30s for the mountains and the Klamath Basin. The weak wave will bring a wintry mix into Northern California late Wednesday into Thursday, with minimal snow accumulation. A few snow showers will push north into the mountains and the Klamath Basin Thursday; expect snow accumulation around 1-4 inches.

There will be a short break Friday, before a good storm this weekend. This storm will have plenty of tropical moisture with it, meaning a good amount of rainfall and snowfall above 5,000 feet is expected. Showers will start as a wintry mix Saturday morning across almost all of the area (all except the coast), but will quickly transition to rain showers below 5000 feet when the bulk of the moisture moves in Saturday afternoon.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
