Fog & Ice To Start Thanksgiving

video preview image

High pressure sits over the area which is stabilizing our atmosphere, calming winds and dropping temperatures and after a storm system moves through that’s the perfect set up to see fog. That’s what we’ll be dealing with across the area this morning is fog, areas of dense fog and in the colder spots (which aren’t hard to find) we’ll see freezing fog. Freezing fog can make roadways even more slick, and with the below freezing temperatures the wet roadways may be turning icy. We’ve had reports of black ice already this morning at Lake of the Woods and Chiloquin and spots of ice at Siskiyou Summit, Prospect and Green Springs Summit. Be sure to check road conditions before heading out this Thanksgiving or tonight/tomorrow for Black Friday shopping as fog and icy roads will be the story. You can find road conditions under weather links or by dialing 511 if you’re already out driving.

The afternoon today and tomorrow will clear to partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies across the area with mild temperatures. Another cold front approaches Friday bringing showers to the coast Friday afternoon and inland areas on Saturday with a few showers lingering into Sunday morning.

    Ok….am confused, Yesterday morning….it said rain for a few days next week. Last night…..stated no rain at all next week…and freezing level @ 10-12K. This morning….shows rain for a few days next week and freezing levels @ 6-6500′. Why the big variations from one morning to an evening to another morning????
