Dry for Trick-or-Treating

A weak warm front brought a few light showers to the northern areas today with just a few more clouds this morning for inland areas. Shower activity has ended and for all the trick-or-treaters out tonight it will be dry, albeit a bit chilly. Tomorrow will be the warmest day of the week with plenty of the sunshine from the coast to the basin. Things change Saturday as a cold front moves in knocking temperatures down yet again below average and dropping snow levels to 4,000 feet and potentially as low as 3,000 feet at times. This will bring snow to the Cascade passes and with gusty winds may reduce visibility at times. We could see gusts up to 45mph on Saturday with winds picking up late Friday and rain beginning at the coast after midnight Friday. Be prepared for winter travel this weekend if headed over the passes.

Most of the rain and snow on Saturday will fall along and west of the Cascades with more spotty showers to the east side and Siskiyou county. A few showers will continue into Sunday and Monday with another chance for rain Tuesday and Thursday. While it won’t rain all day everyday we will see periods of rain at times into next week.

Thanks for logging on and have a great evening!
