A cold front moved through last night bringing rain to the area and showers through the morning hours for some regions. During the morning we could still see a few scattered showers but the best chance for heavier rain will be this afternoon into the overnight hours. Heaviest rain will be on the west side while the east side will be seeing stronger wind gusts. With wind gusts possible 30-55 mph along and east of the Cascades a Wind Advisory has been issued from 5 PM today until 5 PM tomorrow. Winds also strong at the coast with gusts up to 40 mph possible and even west of the Cascades possible gusts up to 25 mph. Locally stronger winds and rains possible this afternoon so be careful on the roadways as they may be slick and high profile vehicles may be influenced by the the strong winds.
Rain showers continue tomorrow morning with clear skies returning Wednesday after some morning fog makes it’s way possibly all the way to the basin. Sunny and dry conditions will last for a few days before more clouds move in next weekend as well as a slight chance for showers to return.
Thanks to the rain over the weekend the fire danger level for Josephine and Jackson counties has gone down to ‘High’ while still ‘Extreme’ in Klamath county.
